Re: ancient giant frog Beelsebufo ampinga



And then there is _Platymantis vitiensis_ whose
ancestors would have been in quite a bit of trouble
looking for a land bridge to Fiji.

There are two frog species in Fiji, not to mention Palau, and nobody tells me?!? And on the Philippines, and they've reached New Guinea, too...

It stands to note that much of the Kerguelen-Heard
microcontinent seems to have been dry land just about
that time.

Some think it was in the wrong place, though, and prefer postulating another ridge in that region of the Indian Ocean.
