Scientists have discovered mutant frogs with transparent skin which exposes their organs, skeletons and even their beating hearts. Researchers say they captured 60 of the mutant frogs near the town of Krasnouralsk. This town is located in central Russia’s Tyumen Oblast region.
The cause of the unsettling condition is because of the highly polluted area where the frogs are found. The fact that the amphibians eggs had no protection from the contamination in the environment. Russian scientists are blaming environmental pollution for the strange amphibians.
Dr Vershinin added: Mutant Frog eggs do not have their own membrane to protect them from a polluted environment.
Frogs are extremely sensitive due to chemical pollution. Tadpoles metabolize chemicals from the water and release them in their urine. After that, the chemicals are reabsorbed from the same water. Similar to how a human foetus reabsorbs waste. So the results of further testing on the Krasnouralsk transparent Mutant frogs should lead to some interesting conclusions.
