    This is how we became frogs.

    This is the story of how, long, long ago, we were not yet frogs. Our ancestors were suddenly attacked by great predators. One after another, their friends were eaten, but they evolved to be able to jump and climb trees, change their appearance, and survive. This is one more story of evolution, beginning in the primordial sea, told from a frog’s perspective.
