    A real dead actual frog (actually a toad) just such there is no confusion. This is Duttaphrynus melanostictus which is a toad from Southeast Asia. It grows up to 8 inches long but this one is about 3". That just counts the body and not the legs.
    Southeast Asia seems to be the source for most insects and other small creatures, mostly bats. This is the first toad I have seen, seems to have been freeze dried.
    Matchbox Monday coming up!
