Frogs are vertebrates (animals with backbones)and belong to the Class Amphibia.
All Amphibians:
Have a three-chambered heart.
Use the skin as a respiratory (breathing) surfaceto augment the function of their lungs.
Spend part (or all) of their life asa larval stage living in freshwater.
Amphibians include rogs, newts,salamanders, axolotls and caecilians. Frogs are the only amphibiansnative to Australia. Toads are rogs,but there areno true toadsnative to Australia. The Cane Toad is anintroduced pest.  The rog amily (Family Anura)is an ancient group. They may beound as ossils as oldas 250 million years. This predates the dinosaurs. The region which includes South-East Queensland andNorth-East New South Wales has a greater varietyo rog species (more than 50) than any otherAustralian region o similar size. The reasons or this are explained inChapter 22 o council’s dual-award winning book:
