"IF ALL INSECTS ON EARTH DISAPPEARED, WITHIN 50 YEARS ALL LIFE ON EARTH WOULD END. IF ALL HUMAN BEINGS DISAPPEARED FROM THE EARTH, WITHIN 50 YEARS ALL FORMS OF LIFE WOULD FLOURISH." Jonas Salk.........well isn't this interesting!
The Waxy Monkey Leaf Frog Phyllomedusa sauvagii has adapted to meet the demands of life in the trees. It does not need to return to the ground during the mating season, rather it lays its eggs down the middle of a leaf before folding the leaf, sandwiching the eggs inside. Its nest is attached to a branch suspended over a stream so that hatching tadpoles drop into the water.
