Banded Horned Tree frog Hemiphractus fasciatus Some frogs carry their eggs with them to avoid the risk of leaving them in a waterless environment enough. Most of the time, the egg hatches and the tadpole still takes a while until its members develop. There are animals, however, in which the embryo becomes a tadpole and then a small adult still inside the egg, and can go straight to the ground when it hatches.
A load of round yellow eggs weighs down this Hemiphractus fasciatus , the Casque-headed Treefrog. Mama frog will carry these eggs on her back until they hatch as mini-frogs — no tadpoles here! These frogs are threatened with extinction and are one of 11 species of high conservation concern being bred in captivity in Panama.
