Pipa pipa (Surinam Toad)

Kenny Wray posted a photo: An adult male Surinam Toad from Santa Cruz Forest Reserve, Loreto, Peru. Many species of aquatic amphibians share the presence of lateral lines with fish. These rows of sensory organs help the frogs detect minute changes in pressure due to water movements. These movements can reveal the approach of prey items or warn of impending predators, allowing the frogs to make quick decisions.
