The Ultimate Animal Diversity Quiz! - Quiz

When you have studied animals at school you will have learned about frogs. You may have seen frog spawn and tadpoles in ponds. Frogs are animals with interesting life-cycles. They spend all their life near water or in damp places. Frogs like to hide away. How much do you know about the life-cycle of a frog?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Where are you most likely to find a frog?

    • A.

      In a field

    • B.

      On a lawn

    • C.

      In a tree

    • D.

      Near a pond

    Correct Answer
    D. Near a pond
    Explanation
    Frogs are amphibious creatures that require water to survive and reproduce. Ponds provide a suitable habitat for frogs as they offer a constant source of water, which is essential for their survival. Ponds also provide an abundance of food sources such as insects and other small organisms that frogs feed on. Therefore, it is most likely to find a frog near a pond rather than in a field, on a lawn, or in a tree.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Frogs lay their eggs in ponds. What do we call their eggs?

    • A.

      Frogspawn

    • B.

      Hens’ eggs

    • C.

      Duck eggs

    • D.

      Tadpoles

    Correct Answer
    A. Frogspawn
    Explanation
    Frogs lay their eggs in ponds, and these eggs are called frogspawn.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What hatch from the eggs of frogspawn and swim in the pond?

    • A.

      Frogs

    • B.

      Fish

    • C.

      Hens

    • D.

      Tadpoles

    Correct Answer
    D. Tadpoles
    Explanation
    Tadpoles hatch from the eggs of frogspawn and swim in the pond. Tadpoles are the larval stage of frogs and undergo metamorphosis to develop into adult frogs. During this stage, they have gills and a tail for swimming, gradually developing legs and lungs as they transform into frogs. Therefore, tadpoles are the correct answer as they are the initial stage of the frog's life cycle and are commonly found in ponds.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Look closely. What has this tadpole grown?

    • A.

      Arms

    • B.

      Legs

    • C.

      Fins

    • D.

      Claws

    Correct Answer
    A. Arms
    Explanation
    The tadpole has grown arms because as it develops into a frog, it undergoes a process called metamorphosis. During this process, the tadpole's body undergoes significant changes, including the growth of limbs. The development of arms is a crucial step in the transformation from an aquatic tadpole to a terrestrial frog, allowing it to adapt to its new environment and move on land.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    This tadpole is turning into a froglet. A froglet is a young frog. How many legs has the froglet?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      6

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    As the tadpole is undergoing metamorphosis and turning into a froglet, it is expected to develop legs. A froglet typically has four legs, which enable it to move on land. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When will you find frogspawn and tadpoles?

    • A.

      Christmas

    • B.

      Spring

    • C.

      Summer

    • D.

      Autumn

    Correct Answer
    B. Spring
    Explanation
    Frogspawn and tadpoles are typically found in spring. This is because spring is the season when frogs begin their breeding process. During this time, female frogs lay their eggs, known as frogspawn, in bodies of water such as ponds or lakes. These eggs then develop into tadpoles, which eventually transform into adult frogs. Therefore, it is in spring when one is most likely to come across frogspawn and tadpoles in their natural habitat.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The tadpole grows legs. What does the tadpole lose as it changes into an adult frog?

    • A.

      Arms

    • B.

      Tail

    • C.

      Head

    • D.

      Body

    Correct Answer
    B. Tail
    Explanation
    As the tadpole undergoes metamorphosis and transforms into an adult frog, it loses its tail. This is a natural process in the development of frogs, where the tail, which was once used for swimming, is reabsorbed into the body. The loss of the tail allows the frog to adapt to its adult life on land, where it no longer needs the tail for propulsion in water.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which one of these is an adult?

    • A.

      Frogspawn

    • B.

      Tadpole

    • C.

      Froglet

    • D.

      Frog

    Correct Answer
    D. Frog
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Frog because it is the final stage of the frog's life cycle after it has gone through the stages of frogspawn, tadpole, and froglet. At the frog stage, it has fully developed into an adult frog with all its characteristic features and is capable of reproducing.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What do frogs eat?

    • A.

      Flies

    • B.

      Leaves

    • C.

      Seeds

    • D.

      Fruit

    Correct Answer
    A. Flies
    Explanation
    Frogs eat flies because flies are a common food source for them. Flies are small, quick-moving insects that are easily caught by frogs with their long tongues. Frogs have a sticky tongue that they can shoot out to catch flies in mid-air. Flies are also abundant in many environments where frogs live, making them a convenient and readily available food source. Additionally, flies provide essential nutrients and energy for frogs to survive and thrive.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    How do frogs catch their food?

    • A.

      With their legs

    • B.

      With a stick

    • C.

      With their tongues

    • D.

      With their feet

    Correct Answer
    C. With their tongues
    Explanation
    Frogs catch their food with their tongues because they have a long, sticky tongue that they can shoot out quickly to catch insects and other small prey. This allows them to catch their food from a distance without having to move their entire body. The sticky saliva on their tongues helps to trap the prey, which they then pull back into their mouth to swallow. This method of catching food is highly effective for frogs and is a key adaptation that allows them to survive and thrive in their environment.
