How Long Can Frogs Hold Their Breath Underwater?

Answer

The length of time that a frog can hold their breath underwater depends on the particular species of frog in question. For example, African dwarf frogs spend their entire lives underwater but must rise to the surface to breathe often because they have lungs instead of gills. However, most frogs can breathe through their skin when underwater, so they can remain underwater--not breathing through their lungs or gills--for months at a time when they are hibernating.
