Goliath Frogs Big As Newborn Babies

Weighing as much as a newborn baby, African Goliath frogs on average weigh 6-8 pounds. They measure about 13-16 inches in length, which is about the same width as a laptop computer. Goliath frogs are found in very small regions of Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea in Africa.

The goliath frog is the largest living frog on earth living in or near fast-flowing rivers and streams in West African rainforests. The frogs are considered endangered amphibians due to over hunting and its small habitat environmental range being destroyed.

African Goliaith frogs are found in very small regions of Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea in Africa.

The Goliath Frog's scientific name is Conraua goliath and is known as the Giant Slippery Frog. The world's largest frog is known only from southwestern Cameroon from the region of Nkongsamba, and south to Monte Alen in mainland Equatorial Guinea.
