Can frogs fly?

Can frogs fly?A species of treefrog from Malaya is even more adapted for scrambling and leaping after flying insects. This is Wallace’s Treefrog and it has webbed feet with especially long fingers and toes. When the frog launches into a leap it stretches the fingers and toes wide apart, and the increase in surface area enables it to glide downwards for considerable distances. It does not fly so much as glide, but the advantage it that the frog can catch insects which it would otherwise be unable to reach by jumping normally.
