The croak of the male Coqui frog found in Puerto Rico can be as loud as 100bD… louder than a jackhammer.

The croak of the frog consist of two parts. It starts with a “co”, to deter males, followed by “kee” which to attract females.

The small frog is onomatopoeically named. I find that very funny!
