Grabbing frogs...


Why are you holding the pencil with your tongue?


It's easier than holding it in my hand, since we don't have opposable thumbs.


We don't?!?

No. Try it!


I won't fight you!

Me either!

One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war!


I guess you're right.

Those thumbs definitely faced no opposition.

When I was younger I was lead to believe that our opposable thumbs made us unique as humans. But I have since learned that many other animals have opposable thumbs - including some frogs! So what really sets us apart as a species is our ability to make cheese soufflé. Let's see an opossum master that.
