From Gold to Goliath

Look closely at this picture.

See anything astounding?

Yep, there's a gigantic frog on that girl's lap...the Goliath frog.

Now, you may be thinking, "Awww, look at her big ol' froggy pet." And you might be right.  But that big ol' froggy just might be dinner instead...it's the size of a Thanksgiving turkey!

And yes, the Goliath frog is the biggest frog in the world.  I think I'd run screaming into the jungle if I saw one in the wild!

So what's the smallest frog in the world?

The Brazilian Gold frog. For the last 100 years, they were thought to be babies of other frogs. But last year, someone realized these were adult frogs! Amazing!

Okay, I think I'd want to find a Brazilian Gold frog rather than a Goliath in my backyard!  What about you?
