Ceratophrys ornata (Ornate horned frog)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Argentine horned frog (Ceratophrys ornata), also known as the Argentine wide-mouthed frog or ornate pacman frog, is the most common species of Horned Frog, from the grasslands of Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. A voracious eater, it will attempt to swallow anything that moves close to its wide mouth, such as insects, and rodents, lizards and other frogs, even if this predator would suffocate in the process. It is also kept as an exotic pet.
