All frogs need moisture ... that's a given (they have bodies that are the world's indicator of health ... frogs absorb through their skin ... if you don't have frogs, then you don't have a healthy world ... which reminds me, where are the tadpoles?).

Anyways ... most frogs like to live in wet areas, or at least areas that have close proximity to wet areas. Some frogs can live in area's that dry out on a regular basis ... they find a quiet place, some dig a hole; they basically go to sleep until it's wet. There's even a frog that can be frozen! It wakes up when it's thaw time!

So, to answer your question, frogs need moisture. They are remarkably hardy and will exist in some surprising places (frozen/dry), but their bottom line? They need water. Frogs sing for rain :)

Frogs do not live in hot places... they live in humid or moist places. They need to do this because without moist air OR just plain water, their skin will dry out.
