Did you know that some species of frogs have the ability to change their skin color!? This phenomenon is known as “physiological color change.” Frogs have specialized pigment cells called chromatophores in their skin. They can expand or contract them to change the distribution and intensity of their skin pigments. This results in a change of color.
This color change can help frogs camouflage themselves to blend in with their surroundings, providing protection from predators
