A figurine of a Yellow Wollywog was made and manufactured in Japan.
"After evolution led to the development of its specialized jumping ability, this amphibian actually lost much of its ability to swim."
"This magnificent specimen has the brightest gold coloration and the greatest number of lateral spots of any member in the amphituber family. This species seems to have lost some swimming proficiency with the evolutionary adaptation that granted it greater jumping ability. The amphituber inhabits aquatic shallows and shows an instinctive drive to jump upon and squash smaller creatures."
"Beer-batter and deep-fry for a down-home flavor you won't soon forget!"
Note that there is only one entry for the two species of this family.
"There is a troublesome creature by the water. It immediately tries to jump on and squish the Pikmin, so if I don't quickly issue commands, the Pikmin get flattened. If they could use their strength to hold the beast down, could it still jump?"
