Pacman Frog Care

Pacman Frog Care About

The Pac-Man frog originates in South America, Tropics. They are commonly known as “Pac Man” frogs because of their fairly round shape and really large mouth, which makes them resemble the popular video game character. They are also called “Horned Frogs” due to the presence of horn-like fleshy knobs on the top of their eyes.
