American Bullfrog

American Bullfrog(?) (Lithobates catesbeianus)
Dairy Farm Nature Park, 15th July 2012

This carcass of a large frog was found by Ong SayLin. Based on the size, and the patterns on what remains of the skin on the legs, I believe that it might be an American Bullfrog. This non-native (and potentially invasive) species has been recorded from several locations in Singapore, most probably due to intentional release by people.
