The Nature of Frogs PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Nature of Frogs free pdf Tiny and golden (in Brazil) to the relatively hefty Goliath in Africa, frogs come in a staggering assortment of forms and occupy virtually every type of habitat. The dazzling diversity of these creatures has led to their astounding success: of the 4000 species of amphibians alive today, over 3,500 are frogs, toads, or related tailless types known as anurans. Spectacular photographs and fascinating descriptions reveal every aspect of frogs: their marvelous Lycra-like skin- their long, strong legs that facilitate jumping- their relatively short life cycle- and the energy of their mating rituals, which include raucous calling, leaping, and waving. Frogs face dangers too: while the eggs and tadpoles are especially vulnerable, even the adults are a favorite delicacy of wading birds, snakes, and mammals. Also here are lively, passionate discussions of frogs' portrayal in myths and legends, the effects of pollution on their homes, and the triumph of amphibian monitoring programs in helping the population flourish.
