    That’s so bizarre. Why doesn’t the frog just run away? Maybe some eggs are nearby? And I didn’t know frogs were capable of making those noises. Good find.

    Am I the only one finding myself hoping that the frog could get a good nip in on the guy’s finger?!

    The frog did sound like a toy chain saw, though! Cute.

    I though it sounded more like he (?) was passing gas through a tiny, frog-sized sphincter.

    P.S. Two Aztec dieties on a science thread. Nice!
