Frogs are amphibians - animals that spend part of their lives underwater and part on land. They are well known for their ability to jump; for their sticky tongue, which they use to catch insects; and for their life cycle of metamorphosis. This includes amazing changes from a jelly-like egg, to a fish-like tadpole, to the adult frog.

Frogs live all over the world. Likely, you can find frogs wherever you live. They need water to survive and are often found in ponds and other bodies of water. They are often associated with lily pads.

Frogs are also very noisy animals. They call to one another, expanding their throats with air. In tropical regions, poison dart frogs secrete a toxin that hunters use to take down large animals with a blow dart or a bow and arrow. As for the frog, it prevents them from being eaten.

Some frogs also have sticky feet that allow them to cling to leaves and even glass! If you look out your window at night, you might find a treefrog stuck tight to it, hunting for bugs.

Learning about frogs is ribbit-ing, and so is drawing them! Catch this drawing guide before it hops away.
