Frogs are amphibians, living mostly on land but needing to be near water for breeding. Most frogs have a short body, webbed fingers or toes and protruding eyes! Frogs have long, powerful legs and are excellent jumpers.
Frogs have an interesting life cycle. They their egg in water - usually puddles, ponds or lakes. The eggs then develop into tadpoles, which look like little fish and have gills and tails and swim in the water while they grow. After 9 to 12 weeks, the tadpole will grow legs and start to look more like a frog, but still with a long tail. We call it a froglet. By about 16 weeks it has lost its tail and become an adult frog.
Fun Fact: Frogs drink water through their skin, not their mouths! A group of frogs is called an "army".
