Frogs have a very interesting anatomy. They have highly specialized structures, such as a long, sticky tongue which they use to capture food. The anatomical structures of the bones in their upper and hind legs are also highly specialized for jumping and leaping.

They also have other structures however, that appear useless. An example of this is their weak teeth.

Frogs have a highly developed sense of hearing. They can detect high-pitched sounds with their ears and low-pitched sounds through their skin.

If you’ve ever been accused of being too intelligent for certain people’s tastes,
you may have even been called “Einstein” in a sarcastic or derogatory sort of way, as well.

) And in ancient Greek society, the revealing of a foot by
a woman was tantamount to making an overt sexual
advance. Do you like the dead silence of the forest pierced
with the distant sound of a chain saw.
