Frogs have a skeletal structure similar to humans, it is just less complex. One of the main places this can be observed is the vertebrae. While a human skeleton is made up of twenty-four vertebrae, a frog only has nine complete ones. There is a tenth that is incomplete. Also like a human, the vertebrae serves many purposes.
