How long do frogs usually live?
Small frogs native to eastern North America, like cricket frogs and spring peepers, may live as long
as five years in captivity. Our largest frogs, bullfrogs, may live up to 15 years in captivity, with
intermediate sizes having life spans in between those. Nobody really knows how long frogs might live
in the wild, but about half as long as life in captivity is a good guess.
