Q: What do the GLASS FROG and the GLASS ARMONICA have in common?
A: They're both in this video!
The glass frog is called so because it has see-through skin on its stomach. You can see just about all of its inner organs, including its beating heart. The glass armonica, on the other hand, is one of the rarest and most exotic musical instruments, and it was invented by Benjamin Franklin. In this video, watch a glass frog and hear the song specially composed for it, as played on the glass armonica, by Michael Hearst (via PBS Digital Studios)
