WWW: Devil Frog

In this edition of Weird World Wednesday, I submit to you this excerpt from

'Devil' frog ate dinos for breakfast

Scientists have announced the discovery in northwestern Madagascar of a bulky amphibian dubbed the 'devil frog' that lived 65-70 million years ago and was so nasty it may have eaten newborn dinosaurs.

Its name, Beelzebufo ampinga, came from Beelzebub, the Greek for devil, and bufo, Latin for toad. Ampinga means shield, named after an armour-like part of its anatomy.
