- Some frogs pretend that they're dead when attacked - which helps when the predator only eats live prey or hunts by movement.
- Some frogs have flash markings, so that just before they jump they show really bright markings (on their legs etc.) and a predator focusses on the markings but when they land the markings disappear so that the predator can't see the markings and thinks that the animal is gone:
- Some frogs attack by opening their mouths widely, grunting, screaming, lunging and biting.
- As noted above, poison arrow frogs of Central and South America are brightly coloured to warn predators to stay away (they are highly poisonous).
- Tadpoles may regenerate limbs etc., although frogs normally don't (some regrowth may occur).
- Provided that they defend themselves, frogs generally live from four to forty years (depending on type) with the average being four to fifteen years.
- Of course, if a frog has a driving licence it will prefer to drive off at the earliest sign of danger. Which brings us to the what happened to a frog's car when his parking meter expired? It got toad!!
