Herp Society versus Fourth Graders

A group of fourth-graders has nominated the bullfrog as the state amphibian of North Carolina. Members of the NC Herpetological Society, however, disagree with the choice because it is not particularly unique to the state, and has already been chosen as a state symbol by several other states. Legislators are divided, some noting that several lesser-known species nominated by the NCHS are only found in certain parts of the state. (News source.)
