Description - Horned frogs spend the majority of their lives with two thirds of their bodies buried in the soft, damp earth. They are well camouflaged within their surroundings and surprise almost any organism that happens to appear before them. Horned frogs are very strong animals with extremely powerful jaws that are designed to hold onto animals nearly as large as themselves. The jaws are lined with tiny tooth like nodules which help grip onto struggling prey. Horned frogs don't particularly do well with handling and can become quite stressed when handling is done regularly.
