Inktober Day 9: Indian Purple Frog



Day 9; Indian Purple Frog

Almost forgot today’s inktober!! Again very glad I’ve spent the time sketching these out beforehand.😅 Also known as the pig nosed frog, this little purple frog spends most of its life underground. It’s one of two species in the family Nasikabatrachidae which has been evolving independently from others for the past 100 million years! It was only formally described in 2003, though by then it had several locally known names. It is sadly classed as endangered due to habitat loss as well as being hunted as food for local communities.
