These small frogs are able to grip on and hold on in more extreme conditions because of their ability to grip with their toes, belly and thighs. Were the other frogs were relying strictly on their toes. Their ability to hold on even at high degree angles, and while their submerged in water is very fascinating according to researchers. In addition the torrent frogs have elongated cells on the edges of their toes that allows for excess water to drain away. This is something that could potentially help us to be able to think of adhesive in a different way and use natures techniques to make our life’s better.
