Q. Can frogs breathe underwater?
When frogs are tadpoles they breathe underwater through their internal gills and their skin. Later on in life they develop into land animals and develop lungs for breathing air. Frogs breathe with their mouths closed and the throat sack pulls air through the nose and into their lungs. Their throat movements pull air through the nostrils and back into the lungs, then they breathe out with their bodies contracting. Frogs nostrils are placed on top of their head so that they are able to breathe at the same time that they are in the water so that they can always be on guard. Frogs are also able to breathe through their skin, with tiny blood vessels that are located under the outer skin layers.
Q. Can frogs give you warts?
Frogs cannot give you warts. This is a myth that has been told for centuries that many have foolishly believed. Warts are benign squamous neoplasms, which can be caused by a virus. This virus can be only be passed from person to person, and frogs do not carry it. Most people come in contact with the virus that causes warts by accidentally cutting himself on something or by accidentally touching a wart that is located on another person’s body. Most warts are easily treatable. This is thought because a frog has lots of bumps on its skin, that it can spread warts. However this skin that the frog is equipped with is actually meant to camouflage these creatures during self defense and also releases a poison to its predators.
Q. Do crabs have blood?

Q.Do Crabs Feel Pain?
All animals feel pain. In fact, Not only do crabs feel pain, they are also able to retain the memory of it. There have been experiments where hermit crabs have been electrically shocked and then provided with vacant shells afterwards. In which case they were all found to abandon their old shells and enter new ones, exhibiting stress related behaviors such as grooming of the abdomen or rapping of the abdomen against the empty shell.

Like humans if they are hurt they will limp or rub the appendages that are in pain. When they are in pain they release adrenal like hormones that occur when humans are in pain or stress. Unfortunately for crustaceans such as the crab, they often become food for humans and sometimes are even boiled alive.
