Get my kids to any pond or stream and they will instantly start looking for frogs. They try to capture quick, tiny frogs and those big, green bullfrogs. They’ve had them in nets and buckets, on fishing lines and in hands. The kids are fascinated by them.
Recently, DK Publishing sent us this amazing book – Everything You Need To Know About Frogs and Other Slippery Creatures.
This book gives all sorts of fascinating facts about amphibians and reptiles along with fabulous images.
Did you know?
- Frogs don’t usually drink water like we do. They absorb the moisture they need through their skin.
- Snakes aren’t the only animals to shed their skin. Frogs shed their skin, as well. We don’t see this skin like we do snake skin because the frogs eat their old skin!
- Amphibians and reptiles are found on every continent except Antarctica.
- Gila monsters only eat 5 -10 times per year.
- The Chinese giant salamander is the world’s largest amphibian. It can grow up to 6 feet long.
