Frog Pictures

Frog Pictures

Here are some of my frog pictures from my trip to see Frogs - A Chorus of Colors. If you know someone who wants to learn about science and nature, or loves to see reptiles and amphibians, then you should take them to see this exhibit.

There are plenty of toads and frogs to see and photograph. Plus they have lots of video display booths and facts posted all around the place. It is a traveling show but it is currently being held at The Royal Botanical Gardens, in Burlington, Ontario, Canada from January 17th to April 12th 2015.

Fun Facts About Frogs

Frogs Eyes - They mostly only see well at a distance, but they have excellent night vision.

Most interesting thing is they use their eyes to help them swallow. When they blink their eyes go down to the roof of their mouth, which helps them to push the food down.

They have a third eyelid, called a nictitating membrane, that allows them to see underwater. This eyelid also protects their eyes keeping them moist while they are on land.

Sounds - some frogs can be heard from a kilometer and a half away.

Skin - They drink and breath through their skin. About once a week they shed the outer layer of skin and they eat it.

Name - A group of Frogs is called an Army.

      What a great collection of frogs, and great pictures. We have brown toads, green frogs, and bullfrogs. Not a lot of variety but there's something about a Frog. My husband said if I buy any more frog statues he's going to throw them in our pond ;)

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

      That Chinese Gliding Frog is so cute. The Monkey frogs look like little space aliens. What a cool hub. I love frogs! In the summer I get tiny tree frogs all over my patio. I make little houses for them from small flower pots to hide in and often find them sleeping inside the houses. I even paint flowers and leaves on the pots.

      When I was a kid (Pacific Northwest) my big brother found a huge bullfrog - he named him Elmer. One day Elmer got lost and I was the one to find him and carry him back home. I was so happy to have found him.

      Thank you for this hub.

      What gorgeous photos you took of the various frogs in that exhibit. I did not realize that frogs drink and breathe through their skin and that they shed it and eat it that often nor that a group of them is called an army. Fascinating! Up votes and sharing, G+, tweeting and pinning.

      Wow what an amazing collection of frog photos. They really are a creature with a wide range of species. An amazing creature that I hope adapts in our world so it can survive. So many have become endangered due their skin absorbing pollutants.
