As the first summer rains fall in South Africa, they awaken a sleeping giant from nearly half a meter below ground. Giant bullfrogs spend up to 10 months of the year lying dormant in a buried cocoon.

But females have their own techniques for singling out the fittest males, which will care for their thousands of tadpoles.
