Impressed by a bearded dragon playing Ant Crusher ? Check out how intense an African Bullfrog gets during the game.

As the ants climb down the touch screen, it becomes quickly obvious that the tired phrase "there's an app for that" is now becoming relevant to keeping exotic amphibian pets entertained. After successfully lunging and darting its tongue at the Android smartphone, the frog easily passes to the next level.

Suddenly, a bee appears to float lazily down the screen, and in the heat of the moment, the frog cannot help but lunge at it, ending its chance of a high score in Game Center. The frog's reaction to its owner trying to reset the game is viral video gold, but we'll leave it as a surprise for you.
