The Little Frogs That Can't Even Jump Right
Brachycephalus is a genus of tiny Brazilian frogs commonly called pumpkin toadlets. The various species of these frogs average around a half-inch long! These are such small vertebrates that they suffer from a common problem of miniaturization, in that certain organs are just too small to do the job we assume they are for. See, pumpkin toadlets are very bad at the one thing frogs are known for: jumping. They can take off just fine, but land in a fairly haphazard (and comical) way.
