Green Frog

October 12, 2022

Today's animal is the green frog found in Northern America and Canada. They prefer to be alone and spend their lives in solitude. Green frogs will eat anything they can fit in their mouths without discrimination. This cute amphibian can reach top speeds of 10mph when jumping. The green frog lays eggs in permanent bodies of water. The males of the species will defend their territories. Scientists have discovered that the green frog can change its gender, though it is not entirely understood why; there are no obvious motivating factors.

Fun Facts
