Chris Giorni, Mr. Science with Tree Frog Treks, demonstrates how to make simulated frog skin. To make the simulated frog skin, you will need glue, water, borax laundry powder and food coloring. First, add a pinch of the powdered borax to water and dye it green using the food coloring. Next, water down the glue and place it on a plate. Add the borax solution to the plate. Mix the compound with your fingers. It will quickly form a long chain polymer or sticky frog skin. Frogs breathe through their skin so they need a clean, pollution-free environment to live in.
