Don't kiss a frog!!!!
Most people have heard the story about the girl who kissed a frog who turned into a prince. And a popular phrase related to this story is, "You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your handsome prince." It is used to encourage those who still seek true love. Frogs are know for their metamorphosis which is the change of shape during an animal’s life. During metamorphosis the tadpole will develop back legs first, then front legs. Around 6 weeks of life the mouth starts to widen. Sometime around 10 weeks the froglet’s, as it is now called, eyes start to bulge out and the tail begins to shrink and eventually disappear. When the lungs finish developing the froglet makes it’s way onto the land and, Ta-da! It’s a frog! So it cannot be a price. Maybe try kissing a cheetah next time. you never know when you will get lucky! At least you prince will be a fast one;)
