The Seychelles frog is a devoted parent to its offspring. Six to fifteen eggs are laid in a damp, concealed nest and guarded by one of the parents. When the tadpoles hatch, they crawl onto the parent’s back (no one is quite sure whether it is the father or mother) and glue themselves there with mucous. The adult frog then carries the tadpoles and froglets until their yolk reserves are depleted and their legs are developed enough for them to walk.
