8: Did you know that if you ever get a wart that is is now caused by frogs, nor toads? | Well, that's not true. Its a well known myth.You actually get warts from a human virus called "Papilloma" | Http://www.fs.fed.us/r4/amphibians/frog_fact.htm | Frog Fibs

The poison dart frog carries both eggs and tadpoles on their backs in unusual Parenting habitats, This is called "backpacking" it is not unique among Amphibians. | Pictures from: http://www.petsfoto.com/poison-dart-frogs/ Infromation from: http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/amphibiams/poison-frog/ | A frog you should NOT play with
