Frogs

Show/Hide Details

Frogs are a diverse group of tailless amphibians. There are about 4800 different species of frogs throughout the world. Frogs lay their eggs in water. The eggs develop into aquatic larvae called tadpoles. The tadpoles go through a metamorphosis which, upon completion, will allow the fronts to live out the rest of their lives on land. A frog’s skin is semi-permeable which makes it susceptible to dehydration. Frogs live in moist areas and most are carnivorous, but there are a small few species that will eat fruit.
