I haven't located the original PNAS paper yet, but this movie was kind of cool.
The accompanying blurb, from LiveScience:
|The Odorrana tormota frog opens and closes tubes in its ears when listening and calling at night. In this movie, the researchers shined a light under the frog's jaw to illuminate the inside of the mouth. The small circles of light on the side of the frog's head that brighten and dim show the opening and closing of the Eustachian tubes. Credit: National Academies of Science, PNAS (2008)|

Lou FCD is still in school, so we should only count him as a baby biologist. -carlsonjok -deprecated
