Can YOU freeze during winter hibernation, thaw, and continue on? Yeah, we didn't think so... 

In celebration of World Frog Day, we've put together an infographic that highlights some of our favorite amphibian facts!

Did you know? The word amphibian comes from the Greek word amphibios, which refers to the fact that the early life stages of many frogs are aquatic and that the adult stages are generally terrestrial.

There are approximately 6,000 known species of frog found worldwide (on every continent except Antarctica)! Frogs are especially prevalent in North and South America! Not all frogs are poisonous, but run-ins with those that do posses toxins can be fatal.
