The gold frog, Mantella aurantiaca, a species of tree frog from Madagascar. The gold frog is one of the few species of anurans (frogs & toads) in which fertilisation is internal; true mating occurs and the eggs are laid ready-fertilised. In most species the female lays unfertilised eggs, which are then sprayed with sperm by the male.
