My what strange eyes you have… all the better to HYPNOTIZE ME WITH?!! This glass frog, (Centrolene ilex) is veryyy suspicious with those marbled swirling peepers. I mean, there must be a reason to have such captivating eyes, other than just attracting mates and what not.
Maybe they’re there to distract you from seeing inside its body. It is a glass frog, after all, which means that they are relatively transparent. I would be a little self conscious if everyone could look right inside to see what I had for lunch that day, too.
