>>...I think I still have an article from 1971 with a picture of a six legged frog found in Michigan...

Wow, Tim, that's quite a find you made. Not only is it 40 years old, but it made it from Michigan to Ohio. Maybe the extra legs made it move faster...

(don't you wish SOMEBODY would post a serious response here? I'll give it a try. It IS interesting, actually, to me at least, because the two extra legs are both on the same side. The fact that you didn't notice it at first reminds me of times when I've seen hatchlings with either a fault or an interesting pattern aberrancy and didn't notice it at first. I was with a fella at a herp show once who bought a hatchling snake and only later noticed it didn't have eyes. Funny how your attention can get focused elsewhere, or we simply see what we expect to see.)
