Step 2: Then add a large eye with a small line for the frog’s eyelid. Robber frogs have black eyes.

Step 3: Draw a bumpy line for the frog’s back. Robber frogs have very bumpy backs.

Step 4: Now, draw the frog’s front leg and add some long toes for his foot. Frogs have webbed feet that help them swim through the water.

Step 5: Next, draw the frog’s hind legs. Make two lines that are parallel to each other and form a large squashed ‘S’ shape. Add more long toes, and add a sideways ‘U’ shape to make the edge of the other back leg.

Step 6: Add some small ovals and shapes to make the spots on the frog. Add some long curving lines for stripes on his back. Now your frog is done! The robber frog is a muddy brown color with green, yellow, and sometimes even orange markings on his back.
