Steve was a Leopard frog. I say "was" because he long since vanished into the maw of a snapping turtle, and would straightway have been transformed into a part of that twenty-pound bundle of ferocity, had not said turtle been thrown into a furnace by an irate janitor who was fond of Steve but disliked the snapper. Hence, the end of Steve was the occasion for this story of frogs in general and Steve in particular.
