Talk About What You Learned
Explain to your child that treefrogs' feet don't have jelly on them, but they are covered with a sticky liquid that helps them hold on to bark, leaves, or other things. The sticky liquid acts as glue to give the frogs a good grip. Some frogs' feet are so sticky that they can climb up a pane of glass.
- For older children: Tell your child that a frog has a sticky tongue, too. Ask: Why do you think a frog has a sticky tongue? (It helps the frog catch insects to eat.)
