DID YOU KNOW...
Frogs are harmed by tiny amounts of pesticides that are commonly used on Midwest corn.Scientists tested tadpoles of the native leopard frog to see how they were affected by pesticide-contaminated water. The exposed tadpoles experienced a high death rate. Survivors were plagued by a number of problems, from slow development to a damaged immune system
Researchers worry that pesticide mixtures may be contributing to the disappearance of frogs in the U.S. and around the world.
