Manager of the Jurong Frog Farm, Chelsea Wan shows off a large female North American Bullfrog at the Jurong Frog Farm on June 11, 2013 in Singapore. The Jurong Frog Farm started in 1981 and is Singapore's only frog farm. The farm has seen a huge boom in sales in the past year after developing the only fresh, locally made Hashima or Snow Jelly. Traditionally imported from China, Hashima is made from the bullfrogs oviducts and is classed as one of the top five most valued Chinese ingredients. As it comes from the reproductive organs of the frog, it is rich with collagen protein and is said to help skin complexion as well as strengthen the kidneys and lungs.
