A frog used for science!
We are the species most used in dissections in biology classes! In Québec alone, between 30,000 and 60,000 individuals are caught each year to be sold to educational institutions, consumed or used as fishing bait.
Able to absorb moisture from the soil through its belly.
I am mainly active during the day. I am less talented than some of my amphibian friends at retaining water in my body. I am therefore able to absorb moisture from the soil thanks to a very vascularized area of my lower abdomen!
Essential for insect control!
We feed on a wide variety of insects. Without us, you would be faced with many more undesirable insects: slugs, worms, snails, spiders ... yum!
