Reproductive system of frogs

  1. Male reproductive organs consists of a pair of yellowish ovoid testes, which are found adhered to the upper part of kidneys by a double fold of peritoneum called mesorchium. Vasa efferentia are 10-12 in number and after arising from testes run through the mesorchium and enter the kidneys of their side. In kidneys, these open into Bidder's canal, which finally communicates with the urinogenital duct.

    This duct emerges from the kidneys and finally opens into the cloaca. The cloaca is a small, median chamber that is used to pass faecal matter, urine and sperms to the exterior.



  2. A pair of ovaries, situated near kidneys, comprises the female reproductive organs. However, these have no functional connection with kidneys. A pair of oviduct opens into the cloaca, separately. The release of ovum in female is termed as spawning.
