How to Catch Hot Footed Frog

To catch a Hot Footed Frog, press the Left Stick in to crouch, then slowly approach the animal. When you’re close enough, press A to pick up the creature.

If you approach too quickly or Link is spotted, the Frog will run away with quite some speed. In these instances it’s possible to run after it and mash A to grab the creature, but it will soon disappear by jumping into the water or heading underground.
