Fossils show us that frogs and toads made their appearances on earth at least 100 million years ago. They are amphibians, cold-blooded animals that were among the first backboned animals to leave the water for life on land. This program features a fascinating array of these intriguing creatures as it begins with the typical frog and toad life cycle, diet and defense mechanisms and goes on to show some of the interesting adaptations which have enabled frogs and toads to survive and thrive in such a diversity of habitats. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.
