Oh, Taxonomy!

Owing to their great diversity, frogs pose a challenge to taxonomists the world over. What are simply frogs or toads to the layman are a puzzle that has taken and will continue to take years and years of effort and research for taxonomists to describe and classify. Frogs belong to the order Anura, which contains around 4800 species and accounts for nearly 85% of the world's extant amphibians.

One of the rare occasions in which I had collaborated with someone for a cartoon. This is a gag written by the renowned herpetologist and King Cobra expert, Romulus Whitaker, that I illustrated for his talk on amphibian conservation last year. Enjoy the toon!
