I do not have a source but does anyone know why they are called frogs?

My best guess is because they are partially submurged in water.

This looks like an old post, but I can help, so what the heck.

I order pin frogs in bulk from overseas for my own production, ( I make Ikebana vases), and I typically order more than I can use. I sell the extras to help with the high cost of international shipping and the multitude of Customs fees. Folks from this site are welcome to contact me regarding the purchase of pin frogs, (several types and sizes), and they will save money, as I ask less for them than any of the so called wholesalers, and way less than the retailers. Also, I don't have any minimums, so hobbyists can afford to buy from me.

This is not what I do for a living, (sell pinfrogs), so I'm not placing ads anywhere. But I remember what a pain it was to find inexpensive frogs when I got started, so...

Send me a PM.
