Frogs can live to be 40 years old.
Though most frogs live from 4 to 15 years.
Frogs eat with their eyes closed.
The eyes help the frogs swallow by lowering into its head and pushing the food down its throat.
Frogs drink through their Skin.
Instead of swallowing water with their mouths, frogs absorb moisture through their skin. Frogs can also take in oxygen through their skin, which helps them breathe better in the water.
Frogs can jump 20 times their own length.
That’s like a human jumping past four school busses in one leap!
Frogs have sticky tongues.
Frogs don’t use their hands to catch food…they just stick out their tongues! Flies, mosquitoes, and other yummy bugs stick to the tip and get pulled into the frog’s mouth for dinner.
