It first showed up in my childhood as that rather annoying, juvenile habit of interrupting. In a powerful trifecta of circumstances, I turned 30, experienced a great deal of personal loss, and discovered for the first time, the full grace of the gospel. The hard truth is that interrupting is a sign of failing to listen well and respect the value of the other person. It is an indication of my natural man’s selfish tendencies – except for the grace of Jesus, I am the center of my own universe and left to myself I would prefer to do that which suits me.
It is a revelation of my prideful disposition – the humble leader walks in the conviction that listening well to others is a tangible demonstration of the respect that is owed to others simply because we are equally created, valued and loved by our Heavenly Father.
It was a serious roadblock to my ability to win trust and lead well – no matter how right I may be, it simply doesn’t matter if I haven’t invested the time to listen so that I can truly hear people, know people, and then better respond to them so that we can trust one another. I am a perpetual dreamer, cautious builder, passionate instigator and a struggling disciple of Jesus.
In frogs and toads sound is produced when the nostrils are closed and air from the lungs is pushed over the vocal chords (in the larynx) and through the wind pipe (trachea) into the air sac (that sack below their chin that sometimes pokes out to the side and most often to the front).
The smallest frogs work the hardest to produce sound, because so much of their body is taken up with the muscles needed to produce such a large sound. Teachers, if you ever want to show how sound travels through bone, have students plug their left ear with their left index finger, then hold a struck tuning fork to their elbow. In some species of frog you can tell males and females apart by the size of their tympanum. Note the male green frog, with the tympanum larger than its eye, holding onto the female, which as a tympanum about the same size as her eye. In male frogs with this dimorphism the tympanum is usually larger than the eye of the frog, while the female's eye is about the same size as the tympanum. Frogs have a very short distance between their tympanum or eardrums, so they don't hear high frequencies very well (this has to do with sound localization and needing more distance between the eardrum and inner ear). I am currently the Education Program Coordinator at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. My name is Karen McDonald and I am a naturalist and outdoor educator, in the field and classroom for over 15 years.

All of this happened a few years ago and it began a powerful journey of growing in self-awareness and embarking on serious personal development to be a healthier, more effective individual and person. As I got older I interrupted a little less, but the heart issue was simply manifesting itself in a different way because I still listened poorly. This usually means being in control, holding the reigns power and not necessarily having to exert a lot of control over what I’d like to have for myself.
In fact, I’ve had multiple situations in which I found myself so certain that I was right and so certain I could express it most effectively.
When calling they can expand their air sacs using air from the lungs, and then the air can be forced from the air sac back into the lungs in a circular path. But, unlike you, he doesn't have any earlobes hanging off his head which, like dangly lips, would be very unhelpful or hydrodynamic under water. I have also been a curriculum developer for the Smithsonian Science Education Center and a contract curriculum writer for the Discovery Channel.
But in failing to listen I failed to understand how best to meet those I was trying to convince, and in the end we all lost. My desire is that you will see a reflection of the Perfect One through my imperfections and my struggles & failures. One pond I like to visit is devoid of any man-made lights or nearby sounds, so when you close your eyes and listen, just sitting in the dark is like being in a sensory deprivation chamber of just frog calls, quite stirring.
The glottis, or opening into and out of the lungs, modulates the net flow of air and the call production.
Instead, their eardrum is directly on the side of a frog's head, acting as a shield and cover for their inner ear.
When sound strikes the membrane then the vibrations travel down the bone to the inner ear where the semicircular canals, cochlea, and papilla are located.. This is especially useful for detecting the quieter chirps of females or picking up on the sounds of nearby competitors or predators. Also, because of the way their head is structured sound vibrations actually travel from their outer ear, into their inner ear, across the roof of the mouth, and into the inner part of the other ear, in effect hearing a sound twice.


In fact I liked to talk first, and talk over others, and just in general, be the one talking.
But I had tunnel vision – hearing only the issue or argument at hand – and losing sight of the person – in front of me. It is met by the power of the Holy Spirit to produce the gentleness, humility and patience that will cultivate new desires for Him that are greater than my desires for self.
The male's calls advertise their species, general fitness, size, territory, and location to other males and females. To hear they use their mouth cavities to amplify sounds that travel to their inner ear using connective tissues. Using an external eardrum, inner ear, and sometimes chest! Most of us will never get close enough to look at a frog's ears to see if they are larger than their eyes, but many will have the joy of hearing the frogs as they call the first sounds of spring. This type of acoustic communication is vital to creatures that mate and breed in ponds which can often be quite large.
Frogs can't pucker and blow, because they don't have lips per say, just bone covered by skin.
It is covered in skin that doesn't have glands (no sweating in the ol' ear cavity), and is usually located right behind the eye.
In some species of frogs part of their body wall, near the lungs, actually vibrates in response to high frequency sound (like the eardrum). It's thought that this vibration acts as another form of sound input that can help them hear, shuttling the vibrations from the body all, through the lung and into the inner ear.
It's nearly impossible (especially for humans) to pick out one frog among hundreds of the same kind calling, so there is certainly safety in numbers at night too.
From a male frog's point of view, why bother wasting energy with fighting other males when you can out-call them too? Each species of frog also has its own call, which helps female frogs and biologists identify them at night (check out my blog post on resources for learning frog calls).
