Full Answer

The order, suborder, family, genus and species names will vary between the different frog species. The study of classifying living organisms is known as "taxonomy." Taxonomy works by grouping living organisms based on common connections between the organisms. For example, the first group in any classification is the kingdom group. For frogs, the kingdom "Animalia" is chosen because frogs are part of the animal kingdom. The other kingdoms include the fungi kingdom, the plant kingdom, the moneran kingdom and the protist kingdom.
