Frogs drink water and breathe through their skin! They need to keep their skin moist to enable themselves to breathe properly and they secret mucus to help do this; that is why frogs are often regarded as slimy.

The stages or life cycle of frogs: Eggs are laid into water in mass, and hatch into tadpoles, tadpoles breathe through gills and swim using a tail. As they grow they develop legs and begin to loose the tail. At 12 weeks they are called a Froglet; some of the tail will remain as they begin to breathe air with their lungs. An adult frog will have no tail, be able to breath through its lungs and absorb oxygen through the skin; soon they will meet a mate and together produce a whole new lifecycle
