FROGS’ EYES, SHINING—Can you shine frog’s eyes?
No, you cannot shine a bullfrog’s eyes but his breast is a bright gold and as it is always wet and shining can be easily seen after night by the aid of a lantern. Method: When you hear one croak, row your boat or wade carefully and noiselessly toward him, keeping your light concealed under coat or blanket, being guided by the music, and when you judge from the volume of his voice that you are within from thirty to fifty feet from him, uncover your lantern, set it on your head and begin looking for the spot of gold.” Locate him as soon as possible and while lie is still blinded with the light, you can go right up and catch him in your hand.
You will understand that a frog when talking is out of the water, usually Sitting on a lily pad or log, and as he hears you approach or sees the light, will turn and face you. A moonlight night is no good for frogging. It is erroneous to suppose that the hind legs of a frog is his only value, for the meat along the back and on the fore legs is equally as good, but of course not as plentiful it is, however, well worthwhile to dress the entire of large ones.
