The Cry of the Frog


I HAVE on three different occasions heard a frog expostulate in the manner described by Mr. Mott One did so on being patted inquisitively by a cat; the two others on being examined by a little dog. In each case the frog was of so unusually vivid a yellow as to suggest that it was either a variety of the common frog, or that it was in some unusual condition. Is Mr. Mott's frog equally brilliant? I may add that my three were also Leicestershire frogs.
