A frog is an amphibian that is known for its ability to jump.


The Weasley family had a big green pond filled with frogs in their garden at The Burrow.[1]

During the summer holidays of 1994, when Harry Potter visited The Burrow, a fish tank on the windowsill that had previously held frog spawn, held instead a single extremely large frog.[2]

In early August 1995, Hedwig caught a dead frog and brought it home, but Harry Potter asked her to leave off it, as he had work for her.[3]
