Pacman Frogs as Pets
This frog is relatively common in the pet trade, and gets its common (pet trade) name from the popular video game. The frog’s generally rounded appearance and huge mouth led to the cute name. The frog’s scientific name is Ceratophrys ornata, and it is also known as the ornate horned frog.
Pacman frogs are native to South America, and are terrestrial in nature. In fact, they are very poor swimmers and care must be taken that they do not drown in their water bowls.

These frogs are quite large, and can reach around 6-7 inches in length (15-17 cm), although males tend to be quite a bit smaller than females. They are generally about as wide as they are long, so are quite hefty for a frog. Their appetite matches their size, and they will pretty much eat anything that moves.

Pacman frogs have a reputation for being somewhat aggressive, which is largely undeserved.
While they do sometimes bite, it is usually a case of the frog feeling threatened or simply confusing a finger with a food item. FROM ABOUT.COM ARTICLE, link above.
