Frog (Forge)

Frogs are amphibians with squat bodies, long back legs, and bulging eyes. They have dark green coloration. Their tongues are long and agile. Frogs cannot breathe underwater but can hold their breath for up to two hours. They move about on land by hopping but are much faster in the water. The position of their eyes makes surprising a frog impossible.

Female frogs are larger than their male counterparts. Both have the same general characteristics. Young frogs have one-half the health and damage potential of an adult specimen.

These amphibians live in swamps, rivers, and lakes in temperate or tropical climates. They are carnivorous, eating insects and arachnids. Both will attack humanoids that enter their hunting grounds.
