Goliath frog

Tipping the scales at more than 7 pounds, the Goliath is the largest frog in the world. Just two of these frogs weigh as much as a bowling ball. Because this slimy amphibian is so heavy, it can't jump very high. When it's hungry, it hides in marshes and wetlands and waits for insects, newts, and fish. People have been known to pay more than $3,000 for this endangered amphibian.
