Fanged Frogs Are Highly Evolved

These frogs aren't going to give up their legs lightly. Species of frog are rapidly evolving adaptations, such as the small fangs they've grown,  on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, and scientists are amazed by how far they've come in such a short period of time. One reason is their lack of competition on the island, another reason being the frogs that live on the island all dwell within their own individual pocket, so as to avoid further rivalry over food. Nine species of frogs on Sulawesi have never been documented by scientist before, and thirteen species have developed the cute little choppers, making them look like something out of a Twilight-Muppets crossover. There's lots more to read on the subject at PhysOrg.com.
