As you enter Amon G. Carter Stadium at Texas Christian University for the first time you'll see a funny sight. It's not necessarily scary, but giant frogs can be scary I guess. The sight you'll see is a giant bronze frog: it's a horned frog on a pedestal. From a distance it looks like a stegosaurus or perhaps a rhinocerous but as you approach it the sight becomes clear. Then you back up to get the whole frog, the giant horned frog, in your camera frame. People get their pictures taken with it.
Folks might imagine the TCU people who chose the mascot way back when must have had a night of drinking inspiring them to choose such a thing as the horned frog...the Gulf Coast where TCU is, however, has horned frogs all over the place. As a kid visiting Mississippi I got one and brought it home to Pennsylvania: the cold weather at my home didn't suit him well though. Kids down South have them living in sinks and buckets and in goldfish jars.
If you've watched some of those 1950s and 1960s horror movies you probably saw a horned frog playing the part of a dinosaur or monster in one of those low budget black and white science fiction movies...they're nice if your regular monster is on vacation.
