1.Frogs belong to the zoological class called Amphibians and are cold-blooded vertebrates.

2. There are about 3,900 different species of frogs, including toads. They are all born with tails but loose them, as they grow.

3. Common species of frogs include the Goliath frog; Darwin's frog; the Northern Leopard frog; the Poison Dart Frog; the Ornate Horned Frog; the Tree frog and the Wood frog.

4. Toads are basically the same as frogs, but they belong to a class called Bufonidae.

5. All frogs have flat heads, bulging eyes and strong hind legs, which are long and adapted for swimming and leaping. In general, frogs prefer a moist environment.

6. Some toads prefer a drier climate. Their legs are usually shorter and are adapted for walking more than leaping. Toads usually have warty, quite rough skins and are often poisonous.

7. Frogs do not need to drink water as they can readily absorb it through their skins.

9. There are some frogs which can jump further than 20 times their body length, in one leap.

10. Frogs swallow their food whole. Mostly they eat the meat of bugs and worms. They help humans by getting rid of some pesky disease carriers.

Bees are also very clever—and apparently capable of learning one of the basic fundamentals of football. In a new study published Thursday in Science, researchers at the Queen Mary University of London demonstrated that bees could learn to do a totally unnatural task—moving a ball into a specified area—easily and quickly, especially if they were shown how to do it by a plastic bee, or a bee that had been previousl

Does a Spider Use Its Web Like You Use Your Smartphone?

Millions of years ago, a few spiders abandoned the kind of round webs that the word “spiderweb” calls to mind and started to focus on a new strategy. Before, they would wait for prey to become ensnared in their webs and then walk out to retrieve it. Then they began building horizontal nets to use as a fishing platform. Now their modern descendants, the cobweb spiders, dangle sticky threads below, wait until insects walk by and get snagged, and reel their unlucky victims in. In 2008, the researcher Hilton Japyassú prompted 12 species of orb spiders collected from all over Brazil to go through t

Worms: The $7.5 Billion Industry You Haven’t Heard Of

The humble marine worms used to catch fish are some of the most valuable items to come out of the sea, new research shows. For the first time, scientists have calculated the size and value of this overlooked industry. They estimate 121,000 tons of worms—worth nearly £6 billion (or about $7.5 billion in U.S. dollars)—are used for bait each year worldwide, most of these dug out of beaches and tidal flats. For comparison, that’s more than three times the annual revenue generated by the U.S. sushi industry. The estimate is especially impressive since it pertains to the use of various types of mar
