You guys did a great job on your website. We love the picture of the eggs. It is a great picture.

You wondered how long frogs breathe underwater. Frogs have lungs, so they breathe air like you and me. However, they can absorb oxygen through their skin as well, allowing them to stay submerged for very long periods of time. Some species, like bullfrogs, can even hibernate buried in mud at the bottom of the pond.

Thanks for telling us some facts about frogs. We were hopping to get some facts.

great job just your sampling method photo was the same as your observation site information photo

Ok thank you for the imformation
