Fugly Friday: Albino Pacman Frog
This frog is not only FUGLY, but big as well. No cute little froggies here -- this is more like the anti-Kermit. To make him extra fugly, he is also albino with areas that would normally be green and black, this guy is orange and yellow. It all adds to the fugliness.
This animal is called the Pacman frog due to its large mouth and rounded shape that is reminiscent of the iconic video game from the early 1980s. It will eat just about everything that comes its way -- insects, fish, rodents, even each other.
For humans the Pacman frog can make a docile exotic pet inside a 10-gallon tank with the right environmental set up. The frog has also made a small inroad into the entertainment world when one was the pet for the main character for the short-lived television series "Dead Like Me" in 2003.
