Glass Frogs.

Though glass frogs are a genus and not just one species, they're all very cool so I'm going to clump them together. They are all translucent to varying degrees -- some almost to the point of seeing entirely through them. The top one - whose species name is: Centrolene callistommum comes from the greek work "kallistos" loosely meaning "the most beautiful" and "omma" meaning "eye."

You can find them in Peru, Ecuador, and occasionally some of their neighboring countries in NW S. America and S. Central America.
