Amazon Horned Frog


Common name : Surinam horned frog

Scientific name : Ceratophrys cornuta

Family : Leptodactylidae

Native to : Northern South America 

Interesting fact : Insatiable eaters eat almost anything in their way.

Conservation status : Least Concern

The highly territorial frog has horns above its eyes and a good mix of forest colours which camouflage its body. It can easily pass off for a fallen leaf. The stocky frog is carnivorous eating anything that can fit into its mouth. Mating under water, the male deposits eggs on a female which then finds a suitable nesting place.
