How do frogs croak?

Answer

Only male frogs have vocal sacs on ventral side of their throat, though frogs have no neck, these sacks with the help of hyoid apparatus attached muscles force the air in a way that the croaking sound is produced. Frogs are a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura and croaking is a characteristic deep hoarse sound made by fogs.
