More About This episode

Mutants armed with regenerative powers. Giants lurking in underground tombs. Prehistoric creatures with a taste for dinosaurs. These are not horror movie monsters. They're the world's wildest frogs. Join us as we explore this family of freaks and their weird and wonderful abilities, from bone claws to glass skin to lethal poisons. You'll see the invisible, hairy, and disfigured creatures of the amphibian world. Then you'll meet the prehistoric devil frog, a carnivorous, pit bull-sized beast that lunched on dinosaurs.
