Role-Reversal in Frog Mating Results in Singing

Documented for the first time ever, the Bornean frog (scientifically known as Limnonectes palavanensis, but more commonly called the singing frog) has made a serious evolutionary change. Usually, male frogs serenade a female and she chooses the suitor of her liking to mate with, but a recent study has shown a complete role-reversal. Now, a single frog surrounded by singers is most likely to be a male being courted by females. Researchers are currently studying further to see if this is indicative of an entire sex-reversal, but say “judging by the high rate of female serenading, males may be the picky ones.” Read more at Science magazine.
