The Pixie Frog, also known as the African Bullfrog, is the largest species of frog in South Africa. These giants will inhale any prey they can fit in their mouth (even small mammals such as mice). They have very strong hind legs that they use to burrow into the ground, where they can go into a kind of hibernation (called aestivation) during dry summer months. In this state, the Pixie Frog is able to survive by making itself a watertight cocoon that prevents evaporation of body fluids.
