“This amphibian, a frog, gets ready to leap towards its unlucky prey.”

  • Toads, salamanders, and newts are other amphibians.
  • The common prey (an animal that is hunted and killed by another for food) of a frog includes:
    • flies
    • mosquitoes
    • dragonflies
    • worms
    • grasshoppers
    • mice
    • small snakes
  • Frogs lay eggs in water and these eggs hatch into tadpoles. The tadpole then undergoes a metamorphosis (the process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in stages) and becomes a young frog.
  • The eyes and nose of a frog are on the top of their head so they can breathe and see when nearly all of their body is underwater.
