|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Giant Bullfrog. The most obvious characteristic that differentiates Pyxicephalus adspersus from other frogs is its size; its one of the biggest, second only to the Rana goliath of the Congo. They can weigh up to 2 kilograms (4.4 lbs). Unlike most other species of frog, the Pyxicephalus adspersus male is larger than the female.|
It is quite aggressive, and has been known to jump at things that it views to be a threat. Because of its sharp teeth, its bite can be quite serious. The male bullfrog will also aggressively defend his eggs if an animal or a human should approach. Lukily the photographer was not harmed during the photo shoot as this one in paticular looks like a female so she was very co-operative. .

Good close up. I've been looking to the DOF as this is often an issue in similar images and it is more than acceptable in my opinion.
