Caption: Frog. X-ray of a frog (family Ranidae). The frog's semi-circular jawbone gives it a wide gape for capturing prey with its tongue. The strong limb bones are adapted for powerful jumping and swimming. The forelimbs are attached to a fused shoulder girdle to take the impact of landing after a jump. The three pelvic bones are also fused, providing a fixed pivot from which the long hindlegs can kick. The rear toes are elongated and webbed to assist with swimming.
