My husband presented a program on frogs on Saturday night. He had everything from itty bitty cricket frogs...
...to great big bullfrogs.
The bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana, is our largest frog. Measured from tip of snout to base of, uh, tail, this species ranges in size from 3.5 to 8 inches (85 to 200 mm).
When a frog feels threatened, it will puff up its body. Pick up a toad sometime and notice how fat it gets (and don't worry if it wets on you, you won't get warts).
My, what big feet this frog has.
I think frogs and toads have the most beautiful eyes.
One last shot, a big smile for the camera, and we thanked the frog and let it go.
It wasted no time in returning to its home in the culvert by the office!
