How to clean a frog and prep it for dinner may not be at the top of everyone's "skills to know" list but it could come in handy in a survival situation or if you are feeling adventurous in the kitchen.

But you should eat more frogs, especially bullfrogs and especially if you live in the West, as I do. Bullfrogs, native to the Southeast, are aggressive, nasty invaders elsewhere. Here in California they are a scourge.
