Frogs do some things that might seem strange to you. But that’s just because you’re not a frog! For frogs, these things are perfectly normal ways of surviving.

There are almost 6,000 species of frogs, and they live all around the world except in Antarctica. Some kinds are smaller than lima beans while others are almost as big as footballs.

Even better, it might attract prey looking for a cool spot.
