More about frogs

 

Frogs are rather peculiar among the amphibians. Among both groups of amphibians, the salamanders and the caecilians they're unusual as the adults lack the tail and their hind legs are adapted more to leaping аs соmраrеd tо wаlkіng.

The body size of frogs range from 10 mm to 300 mm. Skin loosely covers the body since there is no connective tissue. The feel of the skin may be smooth, warty or folded.

 

Feet and Legs

The legs and feet vary in structure depending on the habitat of the frogs whether they live on trees, earth, water and in burrows. The frogs are supposed to be very quick to catch their prey and escape from their predators and have to be appropriately adapted to their environment. Frogs those living in water have webbed toes but the degree of feet to be webbed is directly proportional to the time spent in water by the frog. The African dwarf frog has fully webbed toes since it is aquatic whereas White's tree frog has half-webbed feet.
