Extreme Leap Frog

Anthony Y, Hibo W, Marco C, Kristopher M, Natalie N

Our question is: does the amount of exercise affect the jump distance of frogs? We exercised 3 Fire-bellied toads for 0, 1 or 2 minutes and measured the distance of their jumps right after the exercise. The frogs jumped farther after 1 minute of exercise, but also each frog jumped different distances. Some exercise is good, but too much can tire out the frogs.
