Green with envy over a great pair of legs? That's nothing new in Calaveras County.
"Pretty Lady," a California bullfrog, beat out 2,000 competitors Sunday with a leap of 19 feet, 4 inches at the 70th annual Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee.Bob Frasano, the owner, whooped and hollered behind his frog, slapping the ground and urging the amphibian to great leaps. Final distances are a combined measurement of three consecutive jumps.
Frasano wouldn't divulge any of his winning strategy.
"A lot of it's in preparation, and a lot of it's in training," he said. "I can't say too much without giving anything away."
"Greenie" was second with a jump of 18 feet, 91/4 inches.
Frasano took home $750. As for the frogs, they're traditionally returned to their natural habitat after the contest, which is based on a Mark Twain short story.
