Frog Candies

If you are a frog lover, chances are that you also enjoy eating froggy candies! There are more frog candies out there to choose from than many people might think, from chocolates to gummy frogs, and all of them are pretty great. You can even buy your own frog candy molds and make your own flavors at home if you would rather do that!

Pesticides Leave Frogs Vulnerable to Parasites

If you are a frog lover, it may be time to become an anti-pesticide advocate. We already know about many of the harms that pesticides can have on our own health, but did you know that frogs, while very adaptable to deal with pesticides, are also harmed through their use? When frogs become acclimated to pesticides in their environment, they also become more vulnerable to other risk factors that threaten them.

Ranchers Angry Over Frog Protection

Frog lovers may rejoice when they hear that nearly 2 million acres are being used to help save frog habitat and preserve the dwindling numbers of several species of frogs, but Sierra Nevada ranchers and loggers aren't happy about the news. They say that the protections placed on the land make it much harder for them to do business, which threatens their livelihood.
