The Crocodile Frog is a rarely-sighted phenomenon from Borneo, described as a crocodile-frog hybrid.

Known from both native legends and sightings in 1976 and 1985, the Crocodile Frog was described as 7-9 feet long, with slimy skin, a pointed head, over-developed hind legs, and a short tail. This description doesn't exactly match known modern animal, although an injured or malformed crocodile could fit the description. Others suggest the Crocodile Frog is a surviving example of extinct giant amphibian varieties, like the one shown here.
