Frogs for kids

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 lay their eggs 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 (called a froglet). By about 16 weeks the froglet will have lost its tail and become an adult frog.

There are approximately 4,740 species of frogs around the entire world. Sadly, about 120 amphibian species, including frogs, toads and salamanders, have disappeared since 1980. 

The highest concentration of frogs is found in warmer tropical climates, but frogs can be found on every continent in the world except Antarctica. 

Frogs mainly eat insects and small animals like earthworms, minnows and spiders.

Some Interesting Facts

  • Frogs drink water through their skin, not their mouths.
  • A group of frogs is called an "army".
  • Some frogs can jump over 20 times their own body length, similar to a human jumping 30 metres!
  • In Egypt the frog is the symbol of life and fertility.
