Hefty Frog - Pacman Frog

Chacoan Horned Frog. Adult size ranges from 3 to 5 inches in total length. They can attain a mass of one pound, truly a hefty frog!

Chacoan horned frogs are native to the Gran Chaco region of Argentina.

 

The frog has a bad reputation among local human populations, but not one that is warranted. Some incorrectly believe that the frog is venomous. However, this fat little frog has no venom, despite what its bright colors may suggest.
