Lake Titicaca Frogs (15) More files... by Pete Oxford and Renee Bish
Lake Titicaca frogs are large, around 12 inches long, with baggy folds of skin along the abdomen, legs, stomach, and neck and live in just one lake in the Peruvian Andes. Locals that live around the lake have revered the frogs as rain-makers, with divine powers. Although classed as "vulnerable" with C.I.T.E.S., T. culeus are eaten in restaurants in Bolivia and Peru, and are a popular tourist dish. Recently, they have been collected for use in what the natives call frog juice, or Peruvian viagra. The frogs are literally put in a blender, and consumed.
