It's unlikely that you'll run into the world's smallest frog this summer, but you'll certainly see all kinds of interesting frogs throughout the summer months. One summer we had a frog who enjoyed living above our front door. He was attracted to the bugs that flew around our porch light!
With new frog species discovered every month, you might think that the frog population is just growing, not shrinking. Science tells us that frogs are possibly next in line when it comes to extinction, though, and a lot of the frogs being "discovered" are simply new species that looked like other species previously discovered already. Nevertheless, it's always exciting to find a new species of frog.
Keeping and caring for tadpoles is a cool opportunity to watch frogs grow and develop for families, friends and even school groups. Different states have different laws about keeping tadpoles, though, so be sure to check if it's okay for you to do so before you buy all of your materials!
Sure, you love frogs, and you'd do anything to protect them, but would you keep them as pets? Plenty of people keep frogs as pets and already know that they can be rewarding and fun family companions. Frog care is not complicted, but like the care for many pets, it is time consuming if you want a healthy, happy frog!
