Pac man frog
Ornate Horned Frogs are large voracious frogs that inhabit the forest floor of Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina and surrounding countries. These interesting amphibians live a sedentary life and do not need a lot of space. Ornate Horned Frogs are ambush predators and will lie in wait for anything that will fit in their mouths.
