SOME time ago a friend of mine who was interested in my amateurish experiments on frogs took some pictures which he intended for publication. He found it necessary to bring out some of the natural markings with ink so that they would reproduce better in print. I am wondering if the marking of Kammerer's specimens which led to his suicide might not have an equally simple explanation.
