Seeing the photographs of the particular animal we can understand the confusion, and all the speculations that have been generated around the species to which this round amphibian belongs.

Jodi wrote in her Twitter post :

“This frog is making the rounds on social media. It is a blunt-headed burrowing frog (Glyphoglossus molossus). Native to the drier parts of mainland Southeast Asia, this species spends most of its life underground, waiting for rain; it has a great shape for digging and conserving water.”

As Jodi explains, the appearance of this kind of frog; Its round and soft body that undoubtedly make it so striking, is part of a special ability to distract potential threats from the environment and possible enemies.

According to the explanation given by Jodi, it is normal for this kind of frog to swell up, acquiring this large size as a defense mechanism to look terrifying and strong against the predators it finds in its habitat. But apparently for people on the Internet it achieved the opposite effect, since many consider her adorable.
