What does the Zherlyanka look like?

A Zherlyanka is a kind of frog
That has a very special skill
It can breathe through its skin and its belly
And make a sound like a bomb when it's ill

It's not very big, just six centimeters
Its body is flat and oval-shaped
Its nose is round and close to its eyes
And its back is brown with black spots draped

But the most striking feature of this creature
Is the color of its underside
It's bright red with black and white dots
A warning to predators that it's not a good bite

This is how the Zherlyanka looks like
A unique amphibian with a fiery hue
You can find it in wetlands and ponds
In Europe and Asia, where it lives and croaks
