This super-sexed frog isn’t what you think. In news that may reassure you or, if you’re a frog perv, disappoint, it isn’t actually swimming round making frog spawn with a gigantically disproportionate dick.
Yeah, seriously. What the frog? Is that thing..a mutant sex frog sent to take our women?
Thankfully, the answer is no. Frogs don’t actually have penises, and that ‘third leg’ (wink wink) is actually exactly that: a third leg.
Brad Esposito, a reporter for Buzzfeed, calmed our fears when he spoke to Gary Marantelli from the Australian Amphibian Research Centre.
He told him it could be an ‘extra partially formed leg.
‘It’s not a penis — frogs don’t have them. ‘But penises did evolve from ‘legs’ during embryonic development so an extra leg is part way there.’
