Feeling bloated?

Some days my work is very satisfying. Take this African bullfrog, for instance. His owner brought him in for “bloating”. The word “bloating” was a massive understatement, as he looked like the Goodyear blimp of frogs.

Bloated African Bullfrog

Poor dude! He was having a very bad day. He was cranky, and none of his clothes fit.

Luckily for us, he was also a super nice frog, and was very cooperative as we drained the excess fluid from his belly.  The fluid was a strange blue-green color, and became foamy in the Deflated African Bullfrogbowl as we collected it. The fluid weighed more than he did.







See how deflated our froggy friend looks afterwards? And happy. I didn’t think frogs could smile, but this sure looks like one.

Happy African Bulfrog
