Did you know...... that there are about 5000 species of frogs in the world?

And the 'ribbit ribbit' croak that everybody recognises as the frog
noise is only made by one species of frog? (Actually 3 similar species
from the same area).

Reason - People have heard 'ribbit ribbit' in almost every night time
scene in old Hollywood films. And it is the croak made by the 3
species of frogs in California near the film studios where the early
films were made.
