There is a quote saying,“When an elephant is in trouble, even a frog will kick him”here see some info about frogs:

  • A frog is an amphibian.
  • More than 4,000 types of amphibians exist in this world, out of which only 45 species are found in Europe.
  • A frog is cold blooded (poikilothermic).
  • Frogs range from 1cm to 30cm in length.
  • Frogs are unable to live in the sea or any salt water.
  • Frogs are able to lay 4,000 eggs at one time.
  • Frogs have webbed feet and long back legs which they use for jumping and swimming.
  • Frogs do not need to drink water, as they are able to absorb water through their skin.
  • A frog is able to change the color of its skin to match its surroundings.
  • The eyes and nose of a frog are located on top of its head. This feature enables it to breathe and see, when most of its body is submerged in water.
  • While under water, the frog’s eyes are protected by a transparent eye lid called a nictitating membrane.
  • Frogs use their long sticky tongue to capture their food.
  • Most frogs eat small insects like flies and cockroaches. The larger ones eat snakes, small mammals, birds and even other frogs.
  • The factors that determine a frog’s habitat are rainfall, soil type, places of refuge and calling and egg laying sites.
  • Each species of frog is blessed with a unique call, which is used to mark out a territory and attract females of the same species
  • Frog eggs, or spawn undergo a change in body structure and physiology, from the tadpole stage to the adult frog stage.
  • Some frogs are able to jump up to 20 times their own body length in a single leap.
  • The Scottish highlands house the biggest frog.
  • A toad is dry and has warts. It prefers to walk instead of jump.
  • Goliath frog (Conraua goliath) from West Africa is the largest known frog with a body length that exceeds 30 cms.
  • The smallest frog that is known, is a Brazilian species (Psyllophryne didactyla) that has a maximum length of less than 1 cm
