What is a frog ? http://allaboutfrogs.org/weird/weird.html
Frogs are able to absorb water into their skin. This means they do not have to drink water to survive.
Frogs have strong hind legs which is why they can hop very far.
Some live near water such as ponds. But most frogs live on land.
Frogs eat other animals such as bugs and worms. Frogs sit still and wait for the bugs to fly by. Then it sticks its long tongue out and eats them.
