a large hybrid European frog, Rana esculenta, which is considered a delicacy by some
Edible frogs are a hybrid of the marsh frog and pool frog and are used for food, particularly in France for the delicacy frogs' legs.
The other species of frog found in this country is the edible frog (Rana esculenta).
The flesh of the edible frog is very tender, white, and delicate.
The fact that the edible frog did not exist there, would make no difference in their belief.
The edible frog (Rana esculenta), however, has been introduced into England.
In these pools, also, they frequently capture the “matamaetlie” or edible frog, which is sometimes nearly as large as a chicken.
