ORNATE HORNED TOAD (Ceratophrys ornata) - ©American Museum of Natural History
- This frog is nicknamed the Pac-Man frog because of its enormous mouth and insatiable appetite.
- It will attempt to swallow anything that moves close to its wide mouth, even if it suffocates in the process.
- They are a sit-and-wait ambush predator and hide well-disguised on the ground or in leaf litter.
- Ornate horned frogs can swallow birds, insects, mice, or even other frogs whole.
- This species can be found in Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil.
