The West­ern Cho­rus Frog is ter­ri­ble at climb­ing and yet is a part of the tree frog fam­ily. That’s got to be con­fus­ing!

All frogs, in­clud­ing the West­ern Cho­rus Frog, have skin that soaks up ev­ery­thing it touches. That makes them vul­ner­a­ble to harsh chem­i­cals that might be in the wa­ter, like pes­ti­cides.
