Wolverine frog :)

"Trichobatrachus robustus actively breaks its own bones :shock: to produce claws that puncture their way out of the frog's toe pads, probably when it is threatened"

The claws can then retract when the frog relaxes the muscle of the pads and frogs, being amphibians, can regenerate their own pads and close the wounds. :shock:
