This is a Namaqua rain frog and not only its shape is amusing but its croaking is cute.
The Jumping Frog Jubilee is an essential part of the annual fair in Calaveras County, California. Its history dates back to 1928 when the first contest was held, based on the story theme from Mark Twain’s novel “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Cavaleras County”. Nowadays, the contesting teams come from all over the state to engage into a funny competition of making the frog jump as far as possible, usually by shouting at it.
Can you guess what this cute creature eats for dinner? The answer is inside this post.
Australian local authorities have announced Toad Day Out. On this day all citizens of Queensland can catch cane toads and bring these poisonous amphibians that are rather toxic to a special destination. All live frogs are painlessly killed and turned into compost, which is used by the cane farmers.
While some people have a tough time with the catching huge toads, others try to protect these frogs from a roundup.
