Meet these 2 cute little furballs! Their owner brought them to the farm to purchase our DEBONED FROG MEAT. This product is vacummed packed in 200g/300g.

Initially, we explored deboning frog meat for our consumers’ convenience but one fine day, many customers where referred by a veterinarian called the farm and told us that frog meat is good for dogs with skin condition; furthermore, it can improve the dogs’ fur quality.

Look at bobby, our farm dog

Prep For Dogs: Thaw the meat and mix with mashed sweet potato.

Prep For Human : Thaw the meat, add it into porridge and make sure you bring it to a boil.

Looking forward to be of service to more pooches at JFF!! 😀

Frog Girl’s First Post On Good Friday !

Hi everyone! This is Frog Girl in the house !

Jurong Frog Farm was swamped last weekend especially on Good Friday holiday!

We experienced a heavy down pour in the midst of conducting a tour. It was a challenging experience because it is not easy to manage the crowd and most importantly there was quite a number of children and elderly! My colleagues and i were so afraid they might slip/trip! But luckily, there were a few kind souls who assisted me along the way with the crowd control while I have to serve one of the tours with our JFF deep fried frog meat and Royal Hashima dessert.

On that day, we could only have lunch at 4pm!
It was really busy. But, i’m glad that i enjoyed it.

Fracts # 7- FROGS ARE LIVING DEAD?!?!

Why do we say that frogs are living dead? Taking the American Bullfrogs (Rana catesbeiana) as an example, they will hibernate/estivate but they will not spend the winter the way aquatic turtles do, digging into the mud at the bottom of a pond or stream. In fact, hibernating frogs would suffocate if they dug into the mud for long period of time. These hibernacula are not as well protected from frigid weather and may freeze, along with their inhabitants.

But frogs do not die! Because they can Antifreeze! Ice crystals form in such places as the body cavity and bladder and under the skin, but a high concentration of glucose in the frog’s vital organs prevents freezing.

A partially frozen frog will stop breathing, and its heart will stop beating. It will appear quite dead. But when the hibernaculum warms up above freezing, the frog’s frozen portions will thaw, and its heart and lungs resume activity. That is why the frogs are being called living dead.

 

Similarly, frogs also undergo estivation aka Aestivation which is a state of animal dormancy, also when animal is inactive and have a lowered metabolic rate, that is entered in response to high temperatures and arid conditions. For example, the prolonged dry season in certain tropical regions.

 

stay tuned for Fracts #8!
