Slimy Frog Skin
Name: Patricia W.
Why do frogs have to keep their skin slimy?
Frogs are amphibians. All amphibians have to stay either in water or where
they will not dry out. Those that spend most of their time out of water
skin coating to keep them from drying out. Some feel "slimy" while others
feel dry. Those that spend most of their time in water have a protective
skin coating, much like many fish.
