are known as amphibians. The word amphibian comes from
2 Greek words, "amphi" which means "both" and "bios" which
means "life". Frogs rear legs are used to help them leap
far ahead. The front legs or arms are short and are usually
used to help the frog eat it's food and sit waiting for
its next meal, or just to have a look around.
Frogs live on every continent except Antartica. But most
frogs are found in tropical areas. Obviously, frogs love
water and live near it. Ponds, streams, lakes and rivers
all hold a great variety of frogs. However, there are
some frogs that do not live in water. They live mainly
on land and go to the water only to mate. Then, there
are some kinds that live in trees.
