Screaming Tadpoles

You look down into the water and see tadpoles, so you decide to scoop a few up to have a closer look. Then the things begin screaming! You quickly drop them and run for your life! This scenario is not likely to happen, but our Cool Nature Video does have screaming tadpoles. Would you run from them? Take a look...

Researchers report that Argentine horned frog tadpoles produce 'screams' when in distress. It's the first time ever that vertebrate larvae have been heard using sound to communicate underwater. Jorge Ribas reports.

This video can also be found at the Discovery News video page.
