Meet the Mountain Chicken
Posted on August 16, 2011
- Mountain chicken frogs (Leptodactylus fallax) are one of the largest frogs in the world, weighing in at over 2lbs.
- Currently, the species is only found in Montserrat.It was once the traditional national dish of Dominica until chytrid fungus spread across the island.
- The frog, which was named mountain chicken because its meat tastes like chicken, lives mainly in the lowlands and not in the mountains.
- Mountain chicken frogs breed by laying eggs in a foam-filled burrow. The mother stays near the burrow to feed the tadpoles with infertile eggs until they are ready to fend for themselves.
