That looks VERY tasty.  Why are these not on the menu?

They need to build a high solid wall around Florida to keep these foreign invaders out.

/Then fill it with water.

I see a little bit of weird DNA in that frog. Must be a tad Polish.

I know.  Not a frog.  But still....

That article is not very informative. It says it's not the African clawed frog, it's the tropical clawed frog ... that comes from Africa.

Scientific names are actually useful.

People keep these (or those) in an aquarium. I had some once.

What are you going to do release the frogs, or the claws, or the frogs with claws in their mouth that shoot claws?

They are noticeable by their distinctive beret's and will usually be riding a bicycle with baguettes in the front basket.

Relax - It's not like it's an investigation.

Murder hornets were a flop, so now we're getting wolvefrogs. Keep trying, God; you'll get us all one day, you sick bastard.

That movie used Wesley House in Eden Gardens State Park in the Florida Panhandle as a location set. Found that out on a tour of the place on a vacation many years ago.

It would have been a better joke with a different setup.
Still a sensible chuckle

Would someone please turn the headline into a cartoon?

Those make for excellent battlers. Quick, someone catch one and hold it for trade!

Yeah, you're right. I'll have to polish that one up a tad.

This is a poorly written, poorly researched article.   They are a problem but the journalist couldn't be bothered to google what they were talking about to get some facts right to reflect the problem. The journalist shouldn't use scare tactics to make the reader think this is some new monster we need to be terrified of.  Its a known problem that needs help from the public.   They aren't some "new" species that just popped up in 2014 in Florida from Africa.  In 2005 they were already starting to be enough of a problem that talk was started to ban their trade.  They are a backbone of immunological research (think mRNA covid vaccine research) so they will not go away. We just need to make sure they stay in the lab, not in the swamp.

Is this part of the reason you have to defrog your computers hard drive once in a while? How do they get in there anyway? So confusing.
