Originally native to the wetter portions of southern Brigard, the swamp-hound frog’s population boomed after the flooding of the Sterling Marsh. The swamp-hound is one of the largest frog species known, with some specimens having been found measuring nearly six hands (about 10 inches). They are easily identified by the bright orange stripe running down the center of their back and the strange vocalizations that sound eerily similar to barking dogs. The tadpoles are often harvested by people in the area and eaten fried and served over a bed of spinach.
