Frog Of The Month
In the spirit of the Holidays,
This Month's Featured Frog is:
Eli the Santa Frog!
This is Eli.
Eli is a South American Rococo toad.
Rococo toads grow larger than almost all other toad species.
Eli belongs to George, who writes:
Eli measures approximately 10" from snout to vent, and
weighs about 2.5 lbs. I have had him for slightly under a
year, and from what the breeder tells me, he's pretty much
an adult. He spends his days in a 55 gallon terrarium,
looking out our back window at cars, people, dogs and other
things he probably plans to eat some day. When not menu
planning, he likes to soak in his water dish and look
irritated. Eli's "neighbors" include a White's tree frog, a
white-lipped tree frog, several Kaloula Pulchras (chubby
frogs), a marine toad, a green toad, two horned frogs, a
tiger salamander, a baby bullfrog, a tiny turtle and two
Though he's normally pretty placid, a hungry Eli (he eats
mice, unfortunately) is alarmingly fast. Those who've seen
him "hunt" can't believe that such a large toad can move so
Eli salutes (semi-posthumously) Num and Chum, pioneering
toads who dared to become "Frogs" of the Month, and sends
his best holiday wishes to you...or perhaps is just planning
to eat you.
