A Tomato Frog hiding amidst the vines of some plant in his terrarium.
As the sign says, Tomato Frogs, when threatened by a predator, will rely on their bright red color as a warning to be left alone. If the predator pays no heed to it's color, they will puff themselves up much larger than they actually are...a trick seemingly used by many, many animals (such as the puffer fish and others) and if that doesn't work for them, they will secrete a slime over their bodies that is highly toxic.
Girls, this is one frog/toad you definitely don't want to try kissing!
