frog jockey
 n.— «The squabble has also divided many of the competitors, grown men and women who spend days and nights before the fair crawling around ponds and swamps looking for the perfect jumping frog. Known as frog jockeys, the handlers are clannish, working in teams of 10 or more to gather the frogs from waterlogged places around the state.» —“Celebrating, and Quarreling Over, Frogs” by Jesse McKinley in Angels Camp, California New York Times May 20, 2007.
