Common Frog

About Common Frog

The adult species of the Common Frog spends almost all its time on land. In the spring when it is time to breed, it will return to a pond or other small body of water. The female common frog lays up to 4,000 eggs at a time. The eggs are coated with jelly and they float together in a mass called frogspawn. The tadpoles hatch and attach themselves to underwater plants. The water temperature helps to mature the tadpoles. If the water is warm, then the tadpoles will mature faster. If the water is colder, it will take much longer.

Common frogs use their eyesight to hunt. They eat any insect they can catch.
