Question

Margaret in Corby asked:

I have some frogs in my garden and they come up to me and let me tickle them. Why is this?

Answer

I have absolutely no idea! They have very sensitive permeable skins so I wonder why they would want you to touch them. Perhaps they have some parasites they want you to scratch off or something!
