In the rainforest, where Argentina meets Brazil, a frog with a very big mouth catches an enormous fly. Impressed with himself, he sets out along the path to find someone else to amaze. “I’ve eaten the biggest FLY in the whole world!” he brags. “Don’t you wish you were ME?” The Frog with the Big Mouth brags to a toucan, a coati, and a capybara. (None of whom have eaten enormous flies—too bad!) And then, wanting to brag just a little longer, he comes across a large speckled creature with sharp teeth—it’s a jaguar. Guess what jaguars like to eat?
A note contains additional information about the South American rainforest animals in the story. Versions of this story appear all over the world, but the real big-mouthed frogs, nicknamed Pacman frogs, live in South America.
