must live in or near a place that has water. Most
frogs live near lakes, rivers, and streams. Frogs
need the water to keep their skin moist, which is
necessary for their survival. Another reason frogs
live near water is because they need the water to
lay their eggs. Frogs begin their life as larvae

fish, reptiles, and mammals such as lizards, newts,
and other small frogs. However, frogs do not hunt
for their food the way a lion might. Frogs have big
eyes on the top of their head so they can see all
the way around. When they spot a tasty treat they
use their tongue to lasso in the bug or worm.
