Jurassic Frog

Just about everyone loves frogs, and I don't mean as an entree. There are over 5,000 species of frogs, the most diverse animal in variety of all vertebrates. Frogs can be found on every continent except Antarctica, in climates ranging from tropical to arctic. 
 
The oldest known "true frog" fossil dates back to the Jurassic period, 188-213 million years ago. (Other frog-like fossils have been recorded as being older, but these prior specimens lacked the short tail structure and powerful jumping legs that typify our present day frog.)

Comments: No, these frogs are not fossils. Nor are they real, so don't go calling your new friend, the animal rights activist. This photo was taken at the State Complex in Trenton, NJ.
