An Australian scientist has discovered an unusual species of frog in southern Vietnam. The vampire flying frog uses its webbed toes to glide between treetops. But it earned its nickname because the frogs’ tadpoles have strange black fangs. Australian Museum scientist Dr Jodi Rowley, who found the frog, says it is the first time fangs have been discovered in a tadpole.
