Largest Frog

The world's largest frog has a fitting name; the Goliath frog.
Goliath frogs call the rivers of Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea home where they spend their days eating insects, crustaceans, fish, and other amphibians.
A Goliath frog grows up to 13 inches in body length and with outstretched legs can reach over 2 1/2 feet in length.
If you're thinking 'Mmmmm, frog legs', the Goliath frog weighs about 7 pounds so one frog should suffice as a meal but you'd better be quick when catching them as they can jump up to 10 feet in a single bound.
