2012 $1 Young Collectors Animal Athletes – Rocket Frog Unc Coin in Card.

This frog goes like a rocket and is so named because of its remarkable long-lump abilities and stream-lined body. The Rocket Frog has incredibly long and powerful legs, which can propel this little amphibian over vast distances compared to its 5cm size. Giant leaps of four metres are not uncommon.

If a Rocket Frog were human, it would be able to jump around eighty times its own height. By this calculation, taking in the average human height of around 1.7m, it would mean that a person would have the ability to jump in excess of 136m. That’s as high as an Egyptian pyramid or approximately as long as an average football field.

This long-leaper is native to Australia and is often found near streams, swamps, ponds and flooded grassy areas. Like most frogs, the Rocket Frog uses its long sticky tongue to catch food. Watch out! If you happen to be a moth , spider, larvae or worm, because this frog likes you for lunch!. No wonder this fantastic frog is the long-jump champion of the amphibian world!> The coin’s reverse portrays two Rocket Frogs in colour set against a background of their natural habitat.

The Perth Mint’s P Mintmark and denomination are also incorporated.
