May 13th is National Frog Jumping Day
Did you know …
Some frogs can jump over 20 times their own body length; that is like a human jumping 30m.
Other froggy facts:
- There are over 5,000 species of frog.
- Frogs don’t need to drink water as they absorb it through their skin.
- A frog’s call is unique to its species, and some frog calls can be heard up to a mile away.
- Since Pictish times, the frog has been considered lucky in Scotland. This is why stone frogs are commonly kept in gardens and often given as housewarming gifts.
Have a hopping great day!
