One very amazing frog is the Pipa Pipa frog. It lives in the Rainforests of South America. It?s also called the Suriname toad. (Suriname is a country in South America). The pipa pipa lives only in water and almost never comes out. It does swim to the surface to breathe. It can?t hop like other frogs, but it?s a very good swimmer! It has webbed feet, almost like a duck. And it doesn?t catch flies with its tongue like other frogs. No, in fact the pipa pipa does not have a tongue at all. It swims after fish and grabs hold and eats the fish. The pipa pipa has tiny teeth in its moth that help it hold on to food.
