World Frog Day March 20
World Frog Day, March 20

World Frog Day is a day for people to learn more about frogs and what has already caused many species to die out. There are over 4,000 species of frogs and about 170 species have become extinct in the past decade. Frogs are dying out due to both human activity and fungal infections. Frogs breathe and absorb water through their skin, so when foreign chemicals and toxins are added to their water source, they absorb it along with the water. There is also a fungus that infects many species of frogs which covers the pores on the frogs' skin, preventing them from breathing properly or being able to absorb water.

Because frogs are such important and interesting animals, it would be a shame if they were to die out completely. One interesting thing is that the largest living frog is the Goliath frog that can grow to be over a foot long. The smallest frog is the Paedophryne amauensis which only grows to be less than a centimeter. Just like trees have rings, every year a frog acquires a new ring around his bones during hibernation. Many species of frog are poisonous, but the most poisonous frog is the golden dart frog, whose poison is deadly enough to kill ten grown humans.

Many people will celebrate World Frog Day by spreading awareness of frogs. Some people might want to have a little fun with the holiday and do things like making frog decorations, throwing a party that has a frog theme, or even dressing in all green to make themselves look like a frog. People who are looking for more information and education might watch a documentary about frogs. Below are some items that you can use to celebrate World Frog Day.
