Hillebrand brings in frogs, 1857.

Something New.

Kauka Makaainana (Dr. Hillebrand) has five FROGS [RANA] from California and he has put them in his taro patch. They are doing fine. They make strange noises. Their nature is that they are animals that have two lives. They eat small bugs: flies, grasshoppers, and other things like that. Therefore they are good. O People of Honolulu, do not harm these new things if you see them, because they are valuable.

(Hae Hawaii, 9/30/1857, p. 106)
