A frog is an amphibian. An amphibian can live in water and on land. Frogs are cold blooded, which means their bodies are the same temperature as where they are.
Frogs live in wet place such as rain forests, trees, burrows, around the ponds and creeks. Frogs live in a variety of different habitats. They need to live near the water otherwise they get dry and they die. They suck moisture through their skin to live. But the moisture can come out of their body through their skin which means they get dried up.
A frog sheds it skin about once a week. After it pulls off the old, dead skin, the frog usually eats it.
One gram of the toxin produced by the skin of the golden poison dart frog could kill 100,000 people.
