Fluorescence Frogs | New Discovery


An international team of researchers discovered that Brachycephalus ephippium uses Fluorescence signals to communicate as mating calls.

Pumpkin toadlets (also called Brachycephalus ephippium) are tiny, brightly-colored, and poisonous frogs that can be found in the Brazilian Atlantic forest. During the mating season, they can be seen by day walking around the forest and producing soft buzzing calls in search of a mate.
