Sponsor an Animal



There are over 4,000 species of frogs. They can be found on every continent except for Antarctica. They come in many sizes and colors, each unique in its own way. The smallest frogs are no bigger than the size of a dime, while the biggest, can be over a foot long. Frogs such as poison frogs or the tomato frog have bright colors that warn predators, “I’m toxic! If you eat me, you’ll get very sick!” Other frogs are green and brown to blend into their environment to hide from predators. Frogs are important to have around. Besides eating mosquitoes and other pests, frogs are a good indicator of environmental problems. They are some of the first living creatures to be affected. A sudden decrease in frog populations can serve as a warning that there is something in the environment that might be harmful to humans.
