Well this is a fitting find for a leap-year!  :lol:

All he needs is a nice set of open-toad shoes and I bet he'll look pretty neat!  :w00t: :w00t:  

They should breed them really for the frog leg industry, you'd get more value per frog!!  :tu:

If scientists can create a cross between a frog and a centipede it will be great for the frog's legs industry and keep the lobbyists quiet, since they are complaining out harming the wild frog population.

Hmmm, made me think that if they find more 5-legged frogs and keep them, but eat all the normal ones. One day, 5-legged frogs would be the only kind right?

So why are we not doing this with chickens?!?!  :P
