Pete the African Bullfrog

During the dry season the African bullfrog hibernates underground for up to 10 months or even as long as 2 years. It is protected by the mud it has burrowed into, as well as a mucous cocoon which becomes hard once it dries. When the rainy season returns, the rains seep into the ground and soften the cocoon, allowing the bullfrog within to free itself and emerge from the mud.
