11.25.2022 Frog Friday? Yeah, Frog Friday!

Of course this image is from more archive trolling.Β  But on this drizzly cool day (at least it’s not snowing yet) a Lithobatesian smile warms things up nicely.

Bullfrog in Poor Farm Swamp-2008- shortly after the fun times with that Green Heron.

  2. Better a Lithobatesian smile than the one held by Norman Bates in “Psycho.”

    He’d love our weather just now. Seventy degrees and plenty of rain is making even the grumpiest human smile.

    I like the big smile on its face. A great discovery in your archives! One needs to go often back to the archives. There are so many pearls left waiting to be published.

    That smile would light up even the dourest grinch’s screen. And Lithobates – because they tread on or climb stones, says Wikipedia. Nothing stony about this fella.

    P.S. Regarding bullfrog tongues–I had to look up just how they work:
    “Frogs capture their prey by covering them in some of the stickiest saliva known to science made from a non-Newtonian fluid. This saliva is secreted from thousands of mucus glands and transforms from a liquid to a solid and back, making it easy to catch and grip insects.” https://toadsnfrogs.com/frog-tongue/
    Whoa, maybe no BadAss Bates ain’t got nothin’ on a big bullfrog!

    • I wondered if frog saliva had any uses but did not find any…aside from frogs’ purposes. I thought maybe scientists had discover the molecular properties such as they have with barnacle cement. Something tells me Marion Crane would have rather been receiving frog tongue pokes.

        Thanks Steve, for your interesting comment! Barnacle cement!? Who knew they were such intricate beings with such magical abilities. So many things I don’t know about. It inspired me with some random free associations (one of my favorite ADHD style activities :-P) and I ended up here:

        Maybe mixed metaphor-mosis is my real calling? Maybe I was a chameleon in another life or maybe I’m evolving into one in this life. Now I wanna learn to play the spoons.

      • That was a fun destination. Thanks. I have to admit that the entire time spent watching I wondered if that was the singer’s real nose. That ring is huge.
        Try to remove a barnacle from a rock someday. πŸ˜‚
