OH: Bullfrog vs Salamander

Some students in Ohio are trying to push the Bullfrog candidate for state amphibian now that the Spotted Salamander has gained some political progress. (News source.) Seriously, how dumb are the teachers who are pushing for the bullfrog vote just to "get students involved"? If you're going to name a state amphibian, let it be imaginative, interesting, and worthy of the name. (For that matter, the spotted salamander is a bit mundane also, but it's at least a common emblem in various Ohio wildlife or wetlands groups.)
