A giant appetite

THREATENED SPECIES

The Giant Barred Frog (Mixophyes iterates), silent sentinel of the creek bank, waits motionlessly, naught but its great golden eye betraying its presence. A young rat scuttles among the leaf litter oblivious to its doom, when with a great snap the trap is sprung and the prey subdued by the most unlikely of hunters.
