We love frogs; yes we do! We love frogs, how about you? We sure hope! Today’s Super Surprise Thursday animal is a frog if you haven’t guessed it by now. Are you ready to meet this special amphibian?

Fun Facts:

  • South American Bullfrogs are large and powerful frogs.
  • They are yellow-brown with dark markings.
