Description

Mummified frog discovered by a neighbour dried out on some clay. I believe it to be a Hochstetter's?! Not an Archey's as it has pronounced webbing on the hind feet.

Note: damage to it's right upper arm. Perhaps picked up by a bird (kingfisher?) and dropped to its death? Chewed on by a rat, but not palatable?! Love to hear some of your theories on how it may have died, and yet remained pretty much intact.
