Triadobatrachus

About Triadobatrachus

The earliest known ancestor of modern frogs and toads, the Triadobatrachus lived almost 200 million years ago. This frog-like animal had a small tail, something that modern frogs and toads no longer have. Because frogs have changed very little since they first appeared on the Earth, they are often referred to as living fossils.
