  • Tree Frogs
    434 words
    Frogs are usually small animals that have smooth, moist skin, bulging eyes, and external eardrums behind the eyes; the adults lack a tail. Frogs have long hind legs, and most species can take long leaps. Many species also have webbed feet, making them excellent swimmers. Most frogs, especially males, are quite vocal. As the frog forces air through the voice box, or larynx, the vocal cords vibrate to make calls distinctive of its species. A much louder sound is produced by the males of species th...

  • Boy's Feelings Towards The Frogs
    487 words
    Death of a Naturalist The poem, like Seamus Heaney's work, is very nature minded in terms of context. However, he describes the frogs in a very evil, sinister, and menacing way. It is about a child who collects frog spawn from the dam and collects it in jars. He is innocent and unaware of the evil that lurks in the frog spawn. We can see in the poem that the boy is young, when he remembers his teacher teaching him about the frogs, and his way of calling the frogs 'Daddy frog' and 'Mammy Frog'. T...
  • Frog Skin

    I was amazed to find out just how ancient frogs are. For 190 million years, the ancestors of modern frogs have roamed (if not ruled) the earth, looking much the same as they do today. This means that at one time when there was a huge dinosaur eating a plant, there could have been some type of frog down by its feet. About 3,800 species of frogs and toads have developed since the dinosaur days. The secret to their success is their amazing adaptability. Frogs have evolved to live in a large variety...

  • Change From Tadpole To Frog
    288 words
    Most common frogs live in or around freshwater and lay their eggs in water. The eggs hatch into small tadpoles which grow and develop into frogs over a period of months. This change from tadpole to frog is called metamorphosis. The process involves not only the growth of legs, arms and loss of the tail, but internal gills are replaced by lungs and the digestive system changes to cope with a diet of insects rather than algae and decaying animal matter. The aquatic tadpole metamorphoses to become ...
