Frogs (sometimes called toads)[1][2] are small amphibians that can often be found wherever it is wet. Their young are known as tadpoles. Frogs are common in Black Marsh and are prevalent in Argonian culture. The Vossa-satl is an Argonian instrument which uses living frogs from several species to create the instrument's unique sound.[2] Both Argonians and Dunmer use frogs in their cuisine.[3] Altmer are known to race specially bred frogs.[4]


Aojee ToadEdit

A species of toad found in Black Marsh. Argonians consider it a delicacy, even though the toad is poisonous. Eating too much of it leads to violent tremors and mouth frothing, followed by death. The Aojee Toad is used in the making of Aojee-Sakka, where it's served alongside a bowl of cold hosh, which is also poisonous, but the two poisons are actually antidotes to each other.[5]

Dragon FrogEdit

Dragon Frogs are a unique variety of frog native to certain areas of Hammerfell and Black Marsh, where they are commonly kept as pets for their striking appearance and pest control attributes. They are so named for their small wings and breath abilities; the Hammerfell varieties spitting fire, while those of Black Marsh spew a poisonous gas, which both species use to kill flying insects or other small prey before consumption. When they are ready to mate, female dragon frogs emit an odor that attracts the males, which can result in large gatherings as every frog nearby homes in on the scent.

The sun-blessed toad is an especially rare species found in Murkmire. They are pale green in color and dappled with gold, and are rarely seen, preferring to stay in their mud pits and only emerging to mate every few seasons. As their croaks are highly prized by Argonian vossa-satl makers, they developed a way to lure them out. This involves creating artificial toad musk out of stench sedge, salt rush, and joymallow and applying it to a croak-wheel which mimics the mating croak of the Sun-Blessed Toad.[13] They are known to be quite fragile when excited.[2]
