Raining frogs

A HoloNet News weather report indicating possible frog rain

Frogs were green non-sentient amphibians, widely known as good jumpers. They lived in the watery environments of various planets, including Belsavis. Occasionally, entire swarms of frogs rained down from the skies of a planet. Various species, both sentient and non-sentient, were metaphorically referred to as "frogs."

Biology and appearanceEdit

Frogs were green-skinned,[2] hopping animals with a short body, protruding eyes,[3] four limbs[2] and a long tongue that could flick in and out of their mouth quickly.[4] Frogs lived in large groups gathered in watery areas such as pools and streams. On the world of Belsavis, a cold planet exposed to electrical storms, frogs were a common prey of the mooklas and pittins.[1] Sometimes, entire swarms of frogs seemed to "rain" from a planet's atmosphere.[2]

Metaphorically, several creatures were also called "frogs," including the gorgs[5] or the worrts, both species from Tatooine.[4] Some sentient amphibians like the Rybet were also said to be "froglike,"[6] and the Serps from Serphidi were sometime called "frog-mouth."[7] When the young Anakin Skywalker, a Human from Tatooine, first met the Gungan named Jar Jar Binks, he initially called him "the frog man" before finding out his identity.[8] Nick Rostu once called his enemy Kar Vastor a "frogswallower"—among other colorful epithets.[9]

Other frog speciesEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

George Lucas refused to ever identify Yoda's species, but has jokingly said Yoda was a frog. In the documentary "From Puppets to Pixels," Lucas called Yoda "the illegitimate child of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy."[10]
