    Default Edible Frogs

    You may not know this but edible frogs are actually the product of a hybrid between a pool or pond frog and a marsh frog. Most are green or striped green but some are just gray in color. Here is a link to some pictures:

    Do you know how to tell a frog from a toad?

    ...................frog........................... ........toad
    Skin..........smooth and damp...............drier and warty
    Head.........long and narrow.................short and broad
    Body.........slim waisted......................short and squat
    Hind legs....usually long.........................shorter
    Movement.....hops............................hops, walks or runs
    Spawn........clustered..........................in ribbons

    Sorry Rick, I can't get past that episode of the Simpson's with Homer licking the tree frogs for the buzz. You sure do your homework though, I gotta say, all these helpful hints you keep throwing out there, you're kinda like our Mom.
    some fella confronted me the other day and asked "What's your problem?" So I told him, "I don't have a problem I am a problem"

    OK - you can lick certain frogs and get a buzz. Did you ever wonder who did it first?

    ---two guys walking through woods

    #1 - Dude! Check out that frog.
    #2 - Whoa dude, that's awsome.
    #1 - Dude, I dare you - lick it.
    #2 - Dude, I'm not going to lick it, you lick it.
    #1 - No way dude - I dared you first.
    #2 - Ok dude, but you lick the next one......

    Just thinking of the universal edibility test.....licking before eating.

    "Wow man, your bacon just moved."
    "Cool."
    "Oh, dude, it just hopped."
    (holding breath while talking) "I don't have any bacon."
    "Tell that to the slice that just ate that fly. Awesome colors."

    It should be noted as a public service announcement that these are poisonous frogs. Any attempts to consume them will place you in the Numpty category.....but only for a brief time.

    Note to numpties. There is generally a very good reason nature colors some things so brightly. It because they ARE poisonous and you shouldn't eat it.

    which edible frogs rick? i eat leopard frogs, bullfrogs, etc.

    as for the toads, stay away from any toads in the genus Bufo with large parotid glands behind the eyes, unless it's Bufo alvarius and you'd like to collect and smoke the venom. i can never resist laughing about all those cases of teens getting sick from licking B. marinus venom.

    Edible frogs is the common name for Pelophylax kl. esculentus in Europe and Lithobates clamitans in North America. Cheers to Tony!

    You can include the green frog (Rana clamitans), the leopard frog (Rana pipiens), and the pickerel frog (Rana palustris) as edible.

    Ah, technology.

    Game Warden: "Hey! You trying to spot light frogs?"
    Canid: "No sir, just making a phone call."

    We had a corporate outing at a laser tag site as part of a team build once upon a time. I was on the red team and the other team was green. As it happened, the back light on my pager was green so I used it to lure the others out and then blasted 'em.
