animal's place of origin
Depto. Catan Lil, Laguna del Burro of the Laguna Blanca system, 0.5 km W, 6.0 km N Cerro Lohan Mahuida (Prov. Neuquén, Argentina)family Batrachylidaenotes Male. The 'baggy' skin of this 'aquatic phase' animal becomes highly vascularized, as seen in this close-up of the mid-body area. It is probable that the animal can 'breath' through this enlarged amount of vascularized skin and so does not have to come to the surface to breath air. This hypothesis needs to be tested.camera Canon QL/FT & 90 mm Vivitar macro lensFrom the collection of the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology Herp 188172 View all photos for this specimen
