April is Frog Month!
Frogs are small jumping animals with bulging eyes. They are amphibians: cold-blooded animals that live in water during the first part of their lives and on land as adults. There are over 4,000 different kinds of frogs in the world. They can be any color - red, green, blue, yellow, orange, even see-through and some are poisonous!
Frogs begin as eggs that hatch into tadpoles. A tadpole has gills and a long tail, like a fish. As the tadpole grows, it changes (metamorphosis) into a frog, with lungs instead of gills and legs but no tail.
