Frog Fact or Fiction Quiz

1: "All frogs can jump long distances." Fiction

It's true that many frogs can jump with astonishing speed and power. Their strong back legs launch them forward and their short front legs act as shock absorbers as they come in for a landing.

The best jumper, the southern cricket frog, can leap 36 times its body length in a single hop! However, some frogs cannot leap at all, and instead walk on the ground or climb in trees.
