Did You Know...

African clawed frogs were used for pregnancy tests. The frogs were injected with a woman's urine. If they laid eggs, the woman was pregnant.

Europeans used to predict the sex of an unborn child by dropping a frog near the expectant mother. If the frog landed on its back, she'd have a girl. If it landed on its belly she'd have a boy.
