Flying Frogs by Design

There are several kinds of critters that have the flying moniker, but they do not actually fly. Those that have been designed by the Creator to spend some time in the air can glide impressive distances. No need to fault people for calling them flying whatevers, because they do appear to be doing so for a moment. Flying frogs? It is not Spiteful Sebastian flinging them into the pond, but there are several kinds of tree frogs that can glide nicely (controlled fall) when they have a mind to.

Some creatures are said to fly, but they actually glide or have controlled falling. Wallace’s Flying Frog is a marvel of engineering and programmed adaptation.

Is this natural selection at work? It's probably involved, though some Darwinists invoke the non-science term parallel evolution. That'll be the day! Remember Alfred Russel Wallace who also came up with the idea of evolution by natural selection, but Darwin got the credit? (If Wallace had written a book first, we may have been given a kinder, gentler evolution because Alf believed in a form of intelligent design.) Wallace’s Flying Frog is a marvel of engineering and programmed adaptation.
The most famous is ‘Wallace’s Flying Frog’ (Rhacophorus nigropalmatus). The 44 species of the genus Rhacophorus exist widely in sub-Saharan Africa and southeast Asia, from India to the Philippines.2 They belong to a family of African-Asian shrub or tree frogs, Rachophoridae, which has over 400 species in 21 genera.
