Glass Frog

Per wikipedia (slightly edited):

"Glass frog is the common/popular name for the frogs of the amphibian family Centrolenidae (order Anura). While the general background coloration of most glassfrogs is primarily lime green; the ventral skin of some members of this family is transparent (species of the genus Hyalinobatrachium). The internal viscera, including the heart, liver, and digestive tract can be seen due to the translucency of the ventral skin. "


OK, who wants to see what I ate for lunch, while I am still digesting it?
