Pickerel frogs are nocturnal carnivores. They hibernate starting at the end of October when they burrow into the sediment at the bottom of ponds or streams. They are equipped to protect themselves by producing toxic skin secretions that can kill small animals. Even though this poisonous secretion does not kill all predators, many frog-eating snakes avoid preying on these frogs as they might be fatal after consumption.

Made out of sustainably harvested balsa wood, these lightweight ornaments are hand-carved and then painted with non-toxic acrylic paint by a cooperative of skilled artisans on Isla Solentiname, Nicaragua. Approximate size: 5" x 2".
