Day 72: Forgetful Frog!

Hello again audience I am sorry I totally forgot to post a blog yesterday! I hope you can forgive this forgetful frog :P Had a very busy day yesterday, went to my partners school and then did a bit of a Geocaching. In the evening I watched the movie Battle Los Angeles was a good movie but you have to like action to want to watch it. I will make a better blog for today thought I would just post to tell you why I missed it yesterday! Thanks for reading and ill see you soon! 

Now some random facts! 

Frogs are amphibians in the order Anura (meaning "tail-less", from Greek an-, without + oura, tail), formerly referred to as Salientia (Latin salere (salio), "to jump"). Most frogs are characterized by a short body, webbed digits (fingers or toes), protruding eyes and the absence of a tail. Frogs are widely known as exceptional jumpers, and many of the anatomical characteristics of frogs, particularly their long, powerful legs, are adaptations to improve jumping performance. Due to their permeable skin, frogs are often semi-aquatic or inhabit humid areas, but move easily on land. They typically lay their eggs in puddles, ponds or lakes, and their larvae, called tadpoles, have gills and develop in water. Adult frogs follow a carnivorous diet, mostly of arthropods, annelids and gastropods. Frogs are most noticeable by their call, which can be widely heard during the night or day, mainly in their mating season.

    I thought there was a day missing? lol its funny how sometimes days just blur together! you have been super busy so it is hard to remember! :) but i do love the picture! what a cute frog! as a kid i remember going to the ponds with a bucket and a net and catching tadpoles (which we called pollywogs and i am not sure why? lol) it was fun to catch them and watch them in the bucket and the different stages of them, and then let them go when we were done! they are pretty cool! they seem harder to find around here anymore? but i do hear a lot of frogs at night! :)
