Goliath frog, the largest frog in the world, can be more than 0.3 meters long and weighs nearly 3 kilograms as an adult. With huge size compared to amphibian relatives, the frog Goliath is extremely special.The world's largest frog, 0.3m long, moves 2 kilograms of heavy stone to build & # 34;  Private - 1

According to CNN, the team from Germany and Cameroon has thoroughly researched the world's largest frog and discovered huge size to make them impossible to do.
Scientists found that Goliath frogs transformed natural ponds or created their own "territory" with new nests about 1 meter wide, 0.1 meter deep in riverine waters in Cameroon.
"Goliath frogs sometimes even move stones weighing up to 2 kilos to build 'territory.' We think this labor-intensive operation explains why this frog is so big from birth", Marvin Schäfer, Team leader, shared in a press release.

The Goliath Frog builds a rearing nest away from the fast-flowing water or the area with many predators
Not only is it extraordinary health, the world's largest frog also proves that they are "fathers and mothers" who are always worried about their children. They often build breeding teams away from fast-flowing rivers or areas of many predators.
"Goliath Frog is the first amphibian in Africa known for its ability to prepare or even build its own area to prepare for the breeding season," Mark-Oliver Rödel, president of frog conservation group "Frogs & Friends ", share.
Scientists hope that research will help put in place many conservation efforts with this rare and endangered frog species.
According to a May report of the organization of the intergovernmental scientific policy framework on biodiversity and ecosystems (IPBES), the living environment is narrowed by human exploitation of excessive natural resources. With climate change, environmental pollution reduces the number of frogs Goliath and more than 40% of other amphibians are threatened.
