The skin of these mutant glass frogs is as transparent as glass, using the naked eye can clearly see their bone structure and internal organs, but there is a scary truth behind .
To make this life easier and more convenient, since ancient times, people have carried out many acts of destroying natural ecosystems, these actions also affect the health of some organisms. , even threatening their survival risk.
The frogs' skin is as transparent as glass.
Recently, scientists have discovered mutant glass frogs in Russia and discovered the terrifying truth behind this mutation.
According to published information, scientists found a total of 60 mutant frogs in Krasnoye Selo, Russia.
The skin of these frogs is as transparent as glass, with the naked eye can clearly see their bone structure and internal organs. Moreover, the bodies of these glass frogs also have many abnormal phenomena, obvious hyperplasia in the shoulders and limbs.
Vladimir Vershinin, director of the Ural Federal University of Natural Sciences, said that these frogs' skin may be transparent due to congenital pigmentation defect , while also not present in eggs. Protective film, so very susceptible to the surrounding environment.
Later, scientists began to delve into the study, investigating the main cause of this mutation. As a result, the researchers said, it is very likely that this mutation is caused by environmental pollution by the nearby abandoned chemical plants.
Chemical substances leaked from contaminated tanks, local lakes and stains have affected development and caused mutations of nearby organisms. These transparent glass frogs are a good example.
