Frog Long Thought Extinct Is Rediscovered in Israel
NatGeo ^ | June 6, 2013 | Ker Than

Posted on 06/06/2013 4:12:11 PM PDT by Daffynition

Israeli park ranger Yoram Malka caught only a fleeting glimpse of the frog as it leapt across the road, but he knew it was something special.

When he first saw the frog in northern Israel's Hula Valley, Malka jerked his utility vehicle to a stop, bounded out of his seat, and jumped atop it, catching the creature in his hands.

The animal had a mottled backside and a black belly with white dots. It belonged to a species that most scientists thought had disappeared from the Earth more than half a century ago.

In fact, the Hula painted frog was the first amphibian to officially be declared extinct, in 1996. Prior to Malka's 2011 encounter, the animal had not been spotted alive in nearly 60 years.

“Now watch some idiot build apartments on it’s last habitat.”

Now watch the EPA, the UN and Obama declare all of Israel habitat for this formerly extinct frog.

A Jews must be removed immediately?

/s (maybe)

In fact, HAMAS must take over the habitat of this evil zionist frog.

"We know nothing about its life history," he said. "We don't know if it's active at night. We don't know when it breeds, or how it breeds, or what its tadpoles look like."

In short, they need money to study Hula sex.

Heck! I did that during my Navy days ;-)

The Hula Painted Frog, found in Israel as a refugee from Obama’s marxist-led Hawaiian paradise.

Makes sense.

Perhaps he feared being eaten by Obie during one of his vacations. After all, he did hear about that Indonesian dog....

“Is it kosher ?”

Gotta be killed by a shocket, and then fried by blond virgin cooks, with the added proviso that said cooks be delivered to work by a flaming pink, transgendered unicorn.

Now you know why kosher frog is so rare and expensive.

I was just about to do the “Canada ping” and then I saw the photo. I thought the article was going to be something about Quebec. Nothing to see here, pardon me, carry on.

Inspector: Then we have number four. Number four: Crunchy Frog.

Mr. Hilton: Yes.

Inspector: Am I right in thinking there’s a real frog in ‘ere?

Mr. Hilton: Yes, a little one.

Inspector: What sort of frog?

Mr. Hilton: A...a *dead* frog.

Inspector: Is it cooked?

Mr. Hilton: No.

Inspector: What, a RAW frog?!?

Mr. Hilton: Oh, we use only the finest baby frogs, dew-picked and flown from Iraq, cleansed in the finest quality spring water, lightly killed, and sealed in a succulent, Swiss, quintuple-smooth, treble-milk chocolate envelope, and lovingly frosted with glucose.

Inspector: That’s as may be, but it’s still a frog!

Mr. Hilton: What else?

Inspector: Well, don’t you even take the bones out?

Mr. Hilton: If we took the bones out, it wouldn’t be crunchy, would it?

That’s what happens when you forget to tell the frog that he’s extinct.

I’m sure I’ve had a bottle or two of that vintage; usually in restaurants where it’s all referred to as “house red.”

After a bottle of that...philosophy will make sense.

There was once a man with no guilt
who “SOMEHOW” became a poet,
and every time he’d think about it
he’d grin like a garter snake in a strip joint.

What kind of mindless garbage is this post? Don’t appreciate your mocking what constitutes kosher. Either your IQ is in the negative numbers or you were ingesting something which inhibits brain activity while typing.

RE: My IQ - there are those who thought my tests to be rather on the high side. But, that was merely the considered professional opinion of a past President of the American Psychological Association.

As for my “mocking what constitutes kosher”, may I suggest post post 21?

PS While “blond butchers” might (kinda, sorta, maybe) be considered a mockery of “kashrut”, it is fair to note that my use of a unicorn is recognizable to many as reference to Obama, The Immaculated Won.

As the blind monk said to “Brill Crinton”, “Things are not always as they seem, Grass Smoker”.

Think “irony”, or perhaps “satire”

This is great. Now all we have to do to protect Israel is go to the appropriate UN committee on the environment and get them to pass a resolution that bans bombs, rockets and gas attacks on the habitat of this irreplaceable frog.
