Leaping Ground FrogsBook - 2010
Ground frogs are great jumpers. Some of these amazing amphibians can leap almost 20 times the length of their bodies! That would be about the same as a person leaping the full length of a basketball court in one hop. Ground frogs use their excellent leaping ability to catch food and escape from predators. Their jumping skills have helped them survive since the time of the dinosaurs. In Leaping Ground Frogs, kids will learn about what this animal eats, how it stays safe, and the tremendous transformations that take place as these amphibians grow from water-loving tadpoles to land-dwelling adult frogs.
