Minn. Frog Found With 5 Legs, 23 ToesSome Experts Disturbed By Discovery

A 9-year-old Minnesota girl found a five-legged frog with 23 toes near Stewartville, Minn., according to a report.

Three of the frog's legs appear to be normal, but the fourth has another leg as an offshoot, with three feet attached to it.

Cori Praska and a friend found the deformed frog in the southeastern part of the state.

This find is disturbing to some experts at the Quarry Hill Nature Center.

"It does concern me and mutations like this shouldn't happen that often," Greg Munson of the Quarry Hill Nature Center said.

Munson says 27 other frogs found by Praska were normal.

Experts say the animals are particularly sensitive to pollutants, which can be absorbed through their skin. Because of that, deformed frogs are considered a sign of environmental problems.

There should be legislation passed so that this poor frog is considered normal and anything to the contrary should be considered hate speech!!!

The correct term is "amphibian-American"

This is the fault of greedy corporations and climate change. Global socialism is the only answer.

Sounds like a good breeding opportunity for a frog leg supplier.

Capture and breed that frog!

Imagine what all those extra legs mean for people who like to eat frog legs.

I have said for years that mothers should have 12 arms and hands. We have to do at least 12 things at the same time. Maybe all mothers should go there and drink the water there and we could grow extra arms. We could have them surgically removed when our kids are grown... now wait... we will need them again when we have grandchildren.

Bush's fault.

She-frogs and tadpoles suffer first.

But why always in Minn.? Not Wisconsin or North Dakota. Logic dictates a local pollution issue. Or one very horny frog that has bad genes.
