Mexican Burrowing Frog (Rhinophrynus dorsalis)
This robust fossorial (burrowing) frog lives most of its life underground, and only emerges to the surface to breed during heavy rains. A tough conical warty snout, strong back legs for pushing forward, and shovel-like front legs all help this animal burrow into the ground. It reaches a snout vent length (SVL) of 7 or 8 cm. Its small mouth and protruding tongue helps them feed on termites, which is the vast majority of their diet. R. dorsalis is found in various habitats, from the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas and Southward to Costa Rica.
