This is definitely not the first thing that comes into your mind when you heard words like “Prehistoric” or “Paleontology”.
And this is definitely why I will love forever paleontology and mother nature: always full of surprises.

The “scrotum frog” has the sweetest silliest frog face

of course it’s horribly endangered from dipshits thinking they can turn it into penis medicine

why is it always penis medicine?? .-.
tigers are going extinct because people want their bones for better boners, rhinos too and a dozen of other things.
god damn men calm down with your penises…

A few cultures, unfortunately, put even more absurd value on “MANHOOD” than the West. Some even suffer epidemic-level paranoia that their penises are getting smaller as they age. This phenomenon is even recognized as a mental disorder, “shrinking penis syndrome.” It occurs globally but in some populations it strikes millions of men at a time.

So between this non-existent problem and the overall idea that more penis = more superior, humans are single handedly responsible for threatening a large percentage of the world’s macrofauna with extinction.

A primate evolved to a point where it’s both so powerful and so irrational that it is  now decimating all other life on this planet in a bizarre, baseless panic that that’s how to keep dicks from disappearing.

I’m peruvian, and I can also tell you that this frogs used to be bigger.

According to a friend I have who is studying biology at one of the most important universities here: “There a very few. They used to be 10 times bigger. But now for pollution and poaching, these [frogs] cannot reach adulthood”.

never loved a gif so much

this is kinda creepy tho

The story behind this painting is very interesting, though.  The artist’s mother was very sick, so the house was always filled a suffocating silence.  This painting depicts him wanting to scream, but having to be silent, hence the anguished expression.  In the whole painting you see figures in the background, one of which is his sister.

Today we were learning something about this painting in class, and I showed to a friend this :3
