THE DATING GAME

When male frogs are ready to mate they will ‘call’ out to the female frogs. Each different species of frog has their own special sound and that is the sound that the same species of female frog will answer to.  Some frogs are so loud they can be heard a mile away! After they meet, they find a suitable spot to mate and lay their eggs. 

The male frog will hug the female from behind and as she lays eggs, usually in the water, the male will fertilize them.  After that the eggs are on their own, to survive and become tadpoles.  There are a few species of frogs that will look after their babies, but not many.
