Mooing Like a Frog

The American bullfrog is the largest frog in North America, weighing up to 1.5 pounds and reaching a length of 8 inches. It is a nocturnal predator and will eat just about anything that will fit in its mouth. Their baritone call sounds like the mooing of a cow or bull from which it gets its name.

Bonus Fact: A female bullfrog can lay up to 20,000 eggs, which float in a clump at the surface of the water.
