What do you know about Frogs?
Interesting Facts about Frogs • Did you know that a group of frogs is called an ‘army’? (A group of toads is called a ‘knot’. ) • Frogs don’t drink water they absorb it through their skin. • Frog bones form a ring when the frog is hibernating, just like trees do. Scientists can use these rings to figure out the age of a frog
Interesting Facts about Frogs • A frog completely sheds its skin about once a week. After it pulls off the old, dead skin, the frog usually eats it. • The wood frog of North America actually freezes in the winter and is reanimated in the spring. When temperatures fall, the wood frog’s body begins to shut down, and its breathing, heartbeat and muscle movements stop. The water in the frog’s cells freezes and is replaced with glucose and urea to keep cells from collapsing. When there’s a thaw, the frog’s warms up, its body functions resume and it hops off like nothing ever happened. Follow us: @Smithsonian. Mag on Twitter
