  6. In Egypt, the frog is a sign of life and fertility, and Heget is a frog-goddess who represents fertility in Egyptian mythology.
  7. The female Surinam toad can lay up to 100 eggs, which are then spread out over her back. Her skin grows around the eggs, making a honeycomb-like structure around them. After 12 to 20 weeks, fully grown young toads push through the skin on the back of the adult toad.
  8. A frog’s skin falls off all at once about once a week. Most of the time, the frog eats the old, dead skin after it pulls it off.

  13. In Indonesia, there is a frog that doesn’t have lungs. Instead, it breathes through its skin. The waxy monkey frog’s neck makes wax, which it then rubs all over its body with its legs. The wax keeps the frog’s skin from getting too dry in the sun.
  14. They have their eyes and nose at the top of their heads. So, even though most of their bodies are underwater, they can still see and breathe. Frogs can see in front of them, to the sides, and even a little bit behind them because their eyes stick out. Their eyes also help them chew and swallow. When a frog blinks, it pulls its eyes down to the roof of its mouth to force food down its throat. Bugs, spiders, worms, slugs, larvae, and sometimes small fish are some of the most common things that frogs eat.
  15. Many kinds of frogs take care of their young. In order to keep their eggs moist, some poison dart frogs deposit their eggs on the forest floor.
