Hairy frog. (Trichobatrachus robustus)
Everybody sit down, because I promise that you aren’t ready for the tornado of badassery that I am about to send your way.
When attacked, the hairy frog will break its own bones and force them through its toe pads to create mad claw-type-things.
This frog goes full wolverine on whatever was crazy enough to take it on. Although it isn’t known how the frog retracts it’s insane bone-claws (no one was stupid enough to hang around once they saw it enter X-men mode, clearly), it’s thought that the claws later retract passively, while the damaged tissue is regenerated.
It’s literally a few drops of adamantium away from changing its name to Logan.
