Bullfrog catches dinner

Bullfroghero.jpg

The bullfrog. The outcast of the animal world. Unattractive, anti-social and, at a guess, unpleasantly pungent.

Still, you've got to admire this one. Hungry and on the hunt the African bullfrog, which can jump 3.5 metres, bagged itself a house mouse.

These carnivorous amphibians have an aggressive temper and tooth like projections called odontoids, which are said to feel like broken glass when the fat frogs close their jaws. They are huge predatory frogs that sit and wait for animals to pass by. They are stimulated by movement and will lunge at pretty much anything that comes within range. So now you know.
