African Bullfrog, Pyxicephalus adspersus

Cute Frog of the Week: August 2, 2010

Pair this smoldering look with a loud, bellowing call, and what is a female African bullfrog to do? African bullfrogs are well-known for their calls, which are similar to a roar and are used to locate one another. During mating season, these calls especially come in handy. Their keen sense of hearing assists them when listening to the calls of other bullfrogs. African bullfrogs prey on almost anything they can fit into their mouths.
