The badgerfrog is a furry, hopping animal that is indigenous to the western Fire Nation.[1]


A badgerfrog was "listening" to Zuko when he practiced his introduction to Team Avatar at his campsite, croaking in response to Zuko's remarks.[2]


The badgerfrog is mostly brown with a green underside. It has white markings on the top of its head running down its back and along its limbs and face. Its forefeet have four toes each while its hind feet each have four long, sharp claws. It has yellow-green eyes, with cross-shaped pupils.


At first glance, the badgerfrog seems harmless, but if cornered by a predator, it will defend itself by hopping, clawing, and biting angrily. The badgerfrog seems to enjoy sounds and may stay at a certain spot if it knows it will be hearing speech or conversation.[1]


The badgerfrog is a combination of two real-world animals, namely, the badger and the bull frog.


  • The badgerfrog croaks every two minutes.[3]
    • While on a rescue mission with Sokka, Zuko instructed Aang in a letter to do a series of exercises every time he heard a badgerfrog croak in his absence.[4]
