Did you know that ...
Frogs molt? Yes, they do; once a week. Some may do it every day too. Another astonishing fact is that when the skin comes off, the frog may eat it.
The symbolism of frogs differs across cultures. But if you have thought of getting a frog tattoo, we are sure you think of them as cute little beings. These little wriggly creatures never stop astonishing us! Some frogs have a transparent skin, some have a deadly poison, and some can stop breathing in winter and resume in spring! They bear a cultural significance too. There is an Egyptian frog deity 'Heket/Heqet' who is the fertility goddess and is responsible of the first breath of newborns. The native American tribes respect frogs and believe that they represent transformation.

A frog is regarded as a symbol of many things. Some of them include:
  • In Asia, they are regarded as symbols of good luck because they are related to water, a natural element.
  • In the Celtic culture, these are a symbol of healing. There is an old fairytale about it. Rebirth and resurrection is also symbolized by a frog.
  • Quite contrary to this, frogs are linked with witchcraft in medieval Europe. These are said to be a sign of evil.
