Largest frog [Aquatic]

Last updated: October 10, 2017 at 15:12 pm

The Titicaca frog (Telmatobius coleus) is the largest, saggiest-skinned aquatic frog in the world. In 1968, a Cousteau team reported frogs up to 50 cm (20 in) long in Lake Titicaca (Bolivia), with specimens commonly weighing 1 kg (2.2 lbs). Telmatobius coleus is Latin for ‘aquatic scrotum.’ The Titicaca frog is also the world’s deepest frog.
