A Very Special Frog

The Maud Island Frog. They are an endangered species.

They don’t have webbed feet, but when they swim they doggy paddle.

They lay their eggs in hollow rocks
The baby frogs don’t do the same process as other frogs do. The dad frogs look after them until they lose their tails.

They were moved in chilly bins to Motuara Island so they will have a less chance of becoming extinct. That was in 1997 and there were 300 moved.

  1. How many Motuara frogs can you fit in one chilly bin? How many are left in 2013?
