Lifecycle of frog facts:
Metamorphosis: when an animal changes shape during life
(frog begins as an egg, then grows a tail, and breathes through gills, sprouts legs –
first back, then front legs, mouth widens, eyes grow, the tail shortens, tail
disappears then frog let breathes with lungs and becomes a frog).
Amphibian: vertebrates that spend part of their lives under water
(breathing with gills) and the remainder on land (breathing with lungs).
Frogs are cold-blooded: which means that their bodies are the
same temperature as the air or water around them. When they are cold they will
lay in the sun to warm up and when they get too warm they will go into the water
to cool their bodies off.
Carnivores: They will eat meat. Small to medium sized frogs eat insects
such as flies, mosquitoes, moths and dragonflies. Larger frogs will eat larger
insects like grasshoppers and worms. Some large frogs will even eat small snakes,
mice, baby turtles, and even other smaller frogs.
Characteristics: Good eyesight, good hearing, (the eardrum can be
seen behind their eyes) If the eardrum is smaller than the eye, the frog is a
female. On males their eardrum is the same size as the eye. Frogs have powerful
back legs, and webbed feet for swimming.
Some frogs can jump up to 20 times their body length. Some frogs use their legs
and webbed feet to dig holes for hibernation.
A frog’s tongue is long and sticky, and used to reach out and to grab bugs and
prey. The Tongue is attached at the front of the mouth instead of the back.
