Abstract : It is evident that the bullfrog is resistant to relatively large amounts of sarin given by injection. The only signs of poisoning noticed were observed in frogs given doses exceeding 1 mg. The explanation of the great resistance to, and surprising recovery from, sarin poisoning in bullfrogs is not certain.
