Next in the #GrouchyFrog series is this young #TomatoFrog (#Dyscophus guineti)

Holding this frog for a few seconds will coat your hand in noxious glue. Delightful. Can't get enough of these #Grouchy #RoundFrogs #Frog #Frogs #Frogger #Froggy #FrogsOfInstagram #FrogLife #Crypsis #Mimicry #AmphibiousAF #AmphibianFound #FrogsNeedOurHelp

I have a soft spot for a #GrouchyFrog.

If it's also a #RoundFrog like this one, then I just can't stand it. This baby #AfricanBullfrog has already bitten me once, and has doubled its size in a week. We are growing a group of these charmers for #CritterCamp this summer. #AmphibiousAF
