WE’RE NO STRANGERS TO misbehaving frogs. (Er, remember these guys?) But this slide show from an Australian newspaper takes wild frog behavior to a whole new level. There’s even a photo of a tree frog eating a rat! (Yes, you read that right: a rat.)
DID YOU KNOW that the Horned Frog is Texas Christian University’s mascot? In light of TCU’s stellar football season this fall, the Horned Frog has been making headlines in Fort Worth. They’re featuring all kinds of facts on the team and the amphibian right here.
BOLTON, UK–the town that once brought its citizens a festive underwater Christmas dinner–is now planning The Great North Frog March for May of 2010. The charity march will require teams of five to walk around the town’s track five times with flippers on, backwards. Money raised from the event will go to Bolton Lads and Girls Club, the Royal National Lifeboat Institute and a cancer charity. Sounds like a hopping good time! See you there?

AH, THIS AMERICAN TOAD call is music to our ears.
THE FROGS AT HEADQUARTERS HERE are striving for many things: slugs, bugs, the occasional mouse–and even enlightenment.

If only things were always this peaceful.
HERE AT FROGBOY HEADQUARTERS, you never know who you’re going to bump into after a wild party. Tight-lipped, isn’t he? Quiet or not, this venerable old American toad is a great guardian of Frogboy Mama’s garden.
WHO KNEW THINGS WERE HOPPING like this in Missouri?
