Rana o sapo


Tucked away on a rock, I found this bronze sculpture over in the ABG. A cloud-layer made the sky dull, so my eyes looked down more than up, or I think I would have walked right by. I’m still not clear if it’s a frog or a toad*.

Some Southerners dodge this problem by calling this type of amphibian a toad-frog. There’s some wisdom to not fussing about taxonomic fine points.

More than anything, I think it resembles a dinosaur!

* Another Spanish lesson: rana o sapo = a frog or a toad.

    Definitely frog. I could go on and on about it, but I won’t bore you! Just believe that experience led me to ‘jump’ to this conclusion!

    Thanks, I thought so….
