Frogs are small, hopping amphibians with strong legs and long, sticky tongues. Certain kinds produce highly toxic compounds within their skin; these poison frogs are usually distinguishable by their brightly colored skins.[1] Poisonous frogs are often referred to as spear frogs, referring to the manner in which their toxins are often used to coat thrown weapons such as spears and daggers. While all frogs are amphibious, certain kinds spend less time in the water and are more adapted for climbing lifestyles.[2]

Giant frogs

Giant frogs are enormous relatives of common frogs with razor-sharp teeth, and can grow in excess of six feet in length and 200 pounds in weight.[2] They are sometimes taken as animal companions.[1]
