Kidneys in ANY animal function to filter chemicals out of the blood system and "flush" them out of the body by adding water. In short terms, you pee.

Same as the function of the kidneys in every other animal - to filter out toxins from the blood stream and pass them into the bladder for expulsion from the body, and to help regulate the blood's water levels.
to dilute fat
The kidneys of a frog, like many other animals, filter the blood and excretes excess water. The ureters then carry the urine from the kidneys to the urinary bladder.
To filter blood and secrete impurities.
Kidneys (or ~ nephridia) appear quite early in evolution, and are responsible for disposing of waste liquids, salts and some other chemicals not wanted by the body.

What is a pebble frog?

A pebble frog is a frog that lives up high in the Peruvian mountains. Its only predator at that height is a spider. When it sees this spider it tenses up and falls down the mountain like a little pebble. It does not hurt itself because it is less than an inch long and it weighs less than a paper clip so it is not harmed. I camouflages with the rocks in its habitat quite well too. Google it there are some really great videos on this amazing frog.

Omnivores

Is a frog an omnivore?

No; frogs are carnivores. They only eat bugs, not plants. most frogs are carnivores, but as tadpoles they are herbivores then they grow up to be a carnivore.

However during their juvenile (tadpole stage) they do eat plants and anything they can find edible so they are omnivores at this stage. But literally adult frogs are carnivores for the fact that they are only eating flying insects.
