Budgett’s frog lives in Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina, in both semi-arid and moister areas. It has a flattened body and large head with wide jaws. During dry times it will remain inactive underground in a cocoon of dead skin, which helps it retain moisture. These frogs hunt at night, ambushing prey when it passes by. Females lay large numbers of eggs in temporary pools of water where they develop quickly into tadpoles. This is a 3-D printed, hand-painted model.
