Let us develop respect for all living things. Let us try to replace violence and intolerance with understanding and compassion. And love. - Dr. Jane Goodall.
10 things you might not have know about frogs:
- Frogs don’t drink water to stay hydrated. They absorb it through their skin.
- When a frog catches its prey, it blinks and its eyes push their food down into their throat. This allows them to swallow their prey whole.
- A group of frogs is called an army.
- The Goliath frog is the largest type of frog, and can be the size of a newborn baby (... loading tonight’s nightmare)
- In a single leap, some frogs can jump up to 20x their own body length
- Frogs only have teeth on their upper jaw
- In captivity, some can live as long as 2 decades
- The Australian water-holding frog can wait 7 years for rain
- For every year a frog hibernates, a new layer of bones form (kind of like rings on a tree - you’re able to count them)
- To tell a male and female frog apart, just look at their ears
