Rainbow Frog is Worshipped as God

In India, a newly discovered color-changing frog has been worshipped as a god. Reji Kumar, the person who found it, keeps the frog in a glass jar at his home where hundreds of people come to see it every day.

Apart from the obvious biological findings this hopping lava lamp can provide, it also gives an additional insight as to how religions and spiritual groups can emerge. I don't blame them either. Who needs color-saturating hallucinogens for spiritual transcendence when you have a kaleidoscopic animal?

I say this new rainbow frog will become the new symbol for racial equality, just as long as it doesn't croak (which is actually a concern).

The frog was a dazzling white colour when Reji, who is from Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala, in south India, first spotted it.

Then it changed to yellow and had gone grey by the time he got it home.

“By night the frog was dark yellow, and then it became transparent so you could see its internal organs," Reji, a life worker, reportedly said.

Given that it's India, the title should read, "Rainbow Frog is Worshiped as a God" rather than "... Worshiped as God". There is a difference between a god (lower-case 'g') and God (upper-case 'G').
