Frogs and Toads

This article will tell you all about frogs, their metamorphosis, feet, eyes and much more. Frogs and toads are amphibians. There are around 5,800 species, but we don't really know because new species are still being discovered. Their eyes and feet can look or be shaped very differently - they serve different purposes depending on where the frogs live.

They spend their "childhoods" in the water as tadpoles, when they have tails to steer while swimming. After their metamorphosis they can move on land. Do frogs actually have ears? Or teeth? How long do the animals live? You'll find out on the following pages.
