The Biggest Frog I Have Ever Seen

This one takes at least two hands to hold and wobbles about because it is so full of water.  It’s about the size of a dinner plate.  They live in desert areas near riverbeds where they drink lots and go to sleep under ground for several months at a time.

If you’re dying of thirst, you can reputedly dig one up, hold it mouth to mouth and squeeze the frog to get a drink out of it.  That information may one day save your life if you can handle the thought of it.

  2. Lordy, pointing a frog at your mouth and squeezing for your life — that’s a Coen brothers movie right there! How big would you say it is in inches (or circumference)?
