Frogs are animals that can be found all over the world. Antarctica is the only place where frogs are not found. Frogs can live in water and on land. However, they only live in freshwater. You won’t find any frogs in the ocean because the ocean contains saltwater. When frogs lay eggs, they lay them in the freshwater ponds and lakes. If a frog was kept as a pet, it would need to have access to freshwater as in a pond.

However, if you put seawater into an aquarium and then placed the frog in that aquarium, the frog would most likely die. If the frog’s eggs were placed into the saltwater aquarium, the water inside the eggs would leave. In most cases, these eggs would die as well.
