All animals appear to have grown much larger than we are today during the dinosaur epoch, and frogs are no exception.
Beelzebufo is a giant demon frog that can swallow dinosaurs.
Paleontologists have discovered a giant frog living on the Cretaceous island of Madagascar. This giant frog has an extremely large mouth; when opened to the maximum, they can swallow dinosaurs, so paleontologists have named it Beelzebufo, which means “giant demo-frog,” “ee-frog,” or “toad devil.”
In fact, at the present time, on our continent, there is still another extremely large frog, the giant frog Conraua goliath, living in Africa.
The giant frog Conraua goliath lives in Africa.
This giant frog lives in the tropical rainforests of southern Cameroon and northern Equatorial Guinea and can grow to over 30 cm tall and weigh 3 kg. If you straighten the hind legs of a giant African frog, its length can reach 1 m from head to toe.
Although the giant African frog is quite large, if placed in front of a deformed frog, it will immediately turn into a tiny baby.
Devil frogs have a body length of more than 40 cm and a body weight of 4.5 kg. If you straighten the hind legs of a demon frog, their minimum length will be 1.5 m.
In 2008, paleontologists named them Beelzebufo, which is a combination of the words “Beelzebub” (which means “e” in the e) and “bufo,” which means toad or frog.
Compare the sizes of giant devil frogs and adults.
Although they were only named in 2008, the fossil of this рeсe was discovered in Madagascar in 1993 by David W. Krause of Stony Brook University in the United States.
After collecting and matching 75 fossils, paleontologists were able to obtain an almost complete fossil skeleton of this рeсe with a small batch.
Their size was many times that of common frogs and toads today.
Paleontologists believe that based on the discovered fossil, this is the largest frog known to mankind, as well as a very large slug.
Their mouth is 15 cm wide, and they have a te foсe of 2,200 N, which is comparable to some of the most terrifying саoe on the planet today.In fact, they don’t have to t; instead, their job is to hide and wait for the рeу to pass, then саtс or jump over and swallow the рeу.

Today’s frogs eat mainly insects and are completely different from giant devil frogs; they need more food to be able to fill their huge stomachs. So what is their food?
To answer this question, archaeologists must date their finds.
A group of devil frogs was found in the Maevarano Formation, a sedimentary rock formation of the Cretaceous period dating to nearly 70 million years ago.
In this Maevarano Formation, paleontologists have discovered a large number of fossils of dinosaurs such as Majungasaurus, Rahonavis, snakes, wormfish, and even mammals.

Marc Jones, a researcher at the University of Adelaide’s School of Biological Sciences (Australia), said that with their large bodies, large stomachs, and huge mouths, their food could completely be animals of the same size. similar to other frogs, snakes, and rodents.
So did this giant demon frog really eat dinosaurs? The answer is yes.
In the world where demon frogs live, there are many species of dinosaurs that still exist, although their size is no longer as massive and large as their earlier relatives, and there would be no reason for giant frogs to exist. Giants that refuse to eat are dinosaurs.
The giant devil frog and the South American horned frog, Ceratophrys, share many similarities except for their size. Because both have round bodies and wide mouths, researchers have used South American horned frogs to study the teef of demoiselle frogs indirectly.
But in fact, giant devil frogs cannot eat adult dinosaurs because they are too big for their mouths, so they can only eat and swallow small dinosaurs.
Newly hatched dinosaurs are also their feces, but as adults, the dinosaurs will consider the giant devil frog as their fat feces.
