What does it mean when you dream about frogs?
In dream interpretation, water is often believed to symbolize the psychic world, while land represents the material world. As creatures who are at home in both, frogs can transcend the boundaries between the two. That means they can carry both spiritual and practical meanings.
Frogs also have a place in traditional storytelling. The story of a frog who turned into a prince when kissed by a princess is well known to children.
It’s even passed into everyday language. Ever heard of the expression, “You have to kiss a lot of frogs”? The implied ending is, “Before you find your prince”!
So frogs can appear in our dreams in connection with love, especially romantic love.
Frogs can also symbolize change. The growth of a frog from a tadpole is one of the more dramatic transformations in the animal kingdom. So its appearance in our dreams can herald big changes on the way.
Other traditions associate frogs with good luck, wisdom, prosperity, achievement, rebirth, protection by ancestors, and fertility.
All this means that you may be faced with many different options when it comes to interpreting your dream! To help narrow things down, let’s explore a few of the scenarios in which your dream frog might appear.
1. A Croaking Frog
If there are lots of frogs croaking in your dream, it could represent the voices of those around you.
Some people believe that this dream foretells that you will have many guests in the future. These might include people you’ve lost touch with or haven’t seen for some time. Your dream could also be a reminder to renew those connections.
Others believe it’s a good omen of security in your future. That security will come from having people you love around you.
If the croaking is harsh or unpleasant to listen to, however, there may be a different meaning. It could indicate conflict amongst the people close to you.
2. A Flying Frog
In the real world, frogs clearly don’t fly! So what does it mean if your dream reptile was gliding through the air?
Air can be seen as representing the intellect. So this dream could signify your intuitive thoughts coming to the surface, where you can examine them with your rational mind.
It could also signify that you are about to attain a new perspective on a situation. Like the frog transported from its normal environment, you’ll be able to see things in a fresh way.
Some people also see it as a sign that you’re making progress towards achieving your ambitions. Success lies ahead.
3. A Frog Laying Eggs
Dreams that involve laying eggs are obvious signs of fertility and reproduction. Where a frog is laying the eggs, it could be a sign of future happiness. For pregnant women, it could also reflect their focus on preparing for the new life they’re bringing into the world.
Your dream could, however, have a more oblique meaning. It could be that the eggs here represent creative energy, new projects and ventures. These could be arising from your inner thoughts and desires, as represented by the frog.
Consider which of these meanings resonates with your personal circumstances. That’s usually a good sign as to which is the correct interpretation.
4. A Frog Being Sick
A dream of a vomiting frog is – thankfully – not particularly common. But if you do have this dream, it’s thought to have an unusually specific meaning. And if you’ve recently purchased something expensive, that meaning may not be good news …
The sickly frog is thought to signify the need to return stolen goods to their rightful owners! We’re going to assume that you had no knowledge of the origins of your prized possessions. But this dream suggests it’s a good idea to find out more about where they came from!
5. A Talking Frog
Dreams in which an animal or object talks to you are surprisingly common, and they can take many forms. In this case, it’s less important that the talking creature is a frog, than that it’s talking directly to you.
Dreams of this kind almost always signify a direct message from your unconscious mind. It’s using the dream creature to convey thoughts or advice. These have been gleaned from your own experience and intuition. Your brain is replaying them to you to make you pay attention.
Another interpretation is that the dream frog is acting as a supernatural messenger. That would mean the guidance comes from a source with superior knowledge.
But wherever you believe the advice comes from, it’s a good idea to listen to it carefully!
6. Chasing a Frog
Dreams in which you’re chasing after a frog can indicate that you’re experiencing rapid change. You may be struggling to adjust, chasing after something that has already passed you by.
If, on the other hand, the frog is chasing you, it could mean that you feel pursued by inner fears. Your dream may be prompting you to examine those fears. Until you confront them, you will not be able to move on.
7. Eating a Frog
Eating a frog is thought by some to be an emblem of authority. The authority at present sits with someone else, but it is being transferred to you through the act of eating. This is similar to some traditions that hold that by consuming an animal you gain its powers.
Others believe that eating a frog is a sign that you will have a peaceful and successful life. But it could also mean that you are facing an unpleasant task. If you find the frog tasty in your dream, it suggests you’re making the best of a bad situation.
All these interpretations could apply where you’re wolfing down the whole frog. But some dreams feature eating only the legs.
This could link back to the idea of consuming the powers of the creature. After all, frogs are known for their impressive jumping abilities. But it’s also thought that this dream might mean you need to impose your authority on other people.
8. A Frog in Your Mouth
Dreaming of a frog in your mouth could mean your brain is playing with words. We sometimes talk about having a “frog in your throat” when someone’s voice is hoarse. This could be your unconscious mind using this imagery to reflect problems with communication.
Your dream may be encouraging you to overcome your fear and say what’s on your mind.
9. Stepping on a Frog
If you’ve dreamed about stepping on a frog, it could indicate necessary action to achieve your goals. The frogs are acting as metaphors for obstacles in your way. Your brain is encouraging you to take a direct approach in order to overcome them.
Some people also maintain that this dream means you need help with financial problems.
If the frogs you’re stepping on are croaking, you may have to tune out negative voices. Pay no attention to what they’re saying, and keep moving towards your goal.
10. Killing a Frog
Dreams in which you kill animals are – perhaps surprisingly – generally seen as good omens. You’re overcoming enemies, or even successfully defeating the “wild” parts of your own personality.
Dreams in which you kill a frog broadly conform to these meanings. But there are some variations.
Some people believe it can presage the death of a loved one. And depending on the circumstances, it could signify problems in romantic relationships.
11. A Frog in Water
The location of the frog in your dream can also be important in divining its meaning.
A frog in water can be interpreted in a number of ways. You may be taking refuge from worries that will soon pass. Alternatively, it may be a reflection that you’re in your element – you’ve found an approach to defend yourself from trouble.
The frog might also refer to a desire for travel or adventure. There could be a journey in your future.
And if the frog is in a pond, some people believe it’s a sign you’ll soon receive an unexpected guest.
12. A Frog on a Rock or Pebble
Dreaming of a frog outside water doesn’t, as you might expect, have a similar meaning to a “fish out of water”. If the frog in your dream is sitting on a rock or pebble, it suggests opportunity could be coming your way.
Those opportunities are particularly likely to arrive in a business context. Be ready to take them, and you could achieve great success.
13. A Frog Sitting in Grass
A frog in grass is pretty difficult to spot! If you’ve seen one in your dream, it could be an indication that you’re hiding your true feelings.
And because frogs can be associated with love, it might be that you’re hiding your romantic interest in someone. Your dream could be prompting you to be brave and declare your feelings. Yes, you risk rejection – but it’s just possible they feel the same way!
14. A Frog in Your Home
If the frog is closer to home, it could mean visitors are coming your way. That’s particularly likely to be the case if the frog – or frogs – are hopping around on your doorstep. And get ready to receive them, because your dream might be the only notice you get that they’re coming!
An alternative interpretation is that it’s good news that’s on its way to you. This dream could augur future success or financial rewards.
15. A Frog in Your Bathroom
We know that frogs are at home in wet environments. But what if your dream frog has appeared in your bathroom?
Some people believe that the arrival of the reptile points to a lack of cleanliness. But frogs aren’t unclean creatures. A dream that was warning you about poor hygiene is more likely to feature a creature with an image of being dirty. Rats would be the obvious dream symbol here.
Instead the frog could relate to your own feelings about privacy. Perhaps you’re anxious that someone is encroaching on your personal space.
16. A Frog in Your Bed
If the frog in your dream appears in your bed, it could have romantic connotations. We all know the story of the Frog Prince. This dream could indicate that you hope your current romantic attachment turns out to be the real thing.
It could also signify a reconciliation with an ex-partner. Although you know they’re a frog not a prince, you might be tempted to give things another try.
And whoever your new partner is, dreaming of a frog in bed signifies a new relationship. It might not last forever – but you’ll have fun while it does.
17. Frogs of Different Colors
The color of the frog in your dream can also affect its meaning. If your dream frog is the common-or-garden green variety, the color isn’t significant. But if it’s an unusual shade, it may add an additional dimension to your interpretation.
Black or dark colored frogs could signify loss, grief or emotional darkness. Golden frogs are thought to symbolize future success, although that might come after pain. White frogs signify purity and good luck. Pink frogs are thought to augur learning and spiritual growth.
Yellow frogs signify transformation. Blue frogs indicate healing after a difficult period. And red frogs indicate passion.

Hello and thanks for your explanations on frogs. My dream was about walking on a beach at night and I was about to spit and almost immediately small balls of light (fire?) came out of the water(calm). They were the size of golf balls and were surrounded by a bubble membrane. When I looked it was some frogs launching these things at me! Any interpretation would be a appreciated.
Put the bong don maahnn
Hi, I really appreciate this site and really need help with clarity on my dream. I was laying on the pool side and it started to rain. Then I saw two ladies climbing up an unstable makeshift step ladder wearing different shoes on each foot one short and the other heel is a light blue wedge heel and the other one a black short heel. I walked away and was taking a short cut through the open lands during the night to get to my sister in laws house where a pool of dirty water had living plants in it. I scoop one and it can out with the water in a form of a ball with the plant inside but when my niece tried hers popped and the water spilled out of her hand leaving the plant still alive in her hand. My nephew went in the pool of dirty water to get a garden net out of the pool.
To add to that as the three of us admired how I could scoop the plant with in it water without letting the water drain out of my hand a jumping frog bumped on my calf and fell on the ground the Colour of the frog was brown with what looked like gold shaded strips on both sides of it’s body.
Hi I’m afraid of frogs ‘
I dream them alots and all my kids afraid of them
I dreamt where I was carrying a babe playing with the babe, suddenly I saw a frog sitting on a wood on uncomplicated building I looked at it surprised then I woke up, please what can this mean?
I had one dream of me gifting my uncle for a cage of orange yellow green blue frogs tons of them ..a week later I had a dream my daughter was holding two big green frogs she wanted to keep as pets 😅 what does this mean ???
I dreamt of frogs then i found it strange I thought that you can help me interpret it better for me to know what I am dealing with spiritually. I dreamt nursing baby frogs it’s like i was saving them I took them then would place them in a pond but this pond did not have water. Later on this pond was filled with water and i started checking if the frogs were still alive and they were breathing under water later on i checked again then i didn’t see them anymore i later looked by the corner then i saw huge frogs that were outside water but i couldn’t see the small ones anymore.
3/2/23 If you had a good feeling about the dream, then it probably means that God is blessing you regarding whatever this dream is related to. If the dream gave you an overall bad feeling, then I believe it’s either advising you to find the good in what seems like a bad situation or find a way to exit it. As with all dreams you should pray and God to help you understand. Just like with Daniel, Joseph, and many other accounts in the Bible, God gives us dreams or other experiences to help us better understand what will help us get closer to the plans he has for us. In Joel and in Acts, it talks about how God is pouring out his Spirit on all flesh and we shall be filled with the knowledge of Him. Jesus is the way to reach heaven. If you truly pray and seek God, he will help you understand all things you seek him in.
frogs r amphibians, not reptiles.

Thank you very much for this site. my dream was on yellow and white frog in all the rooms in my house, what does that mean?
I have just woken up from a dream set in my kitchen where I heard a loud screech. I realized it was coming from what looked like a large green leaf bug with orange eyes that was placed in a bowl. As I was about to look up what insect it might be a long red eye tree frog that looked like the size of a sugar glider was dangling off my bar stool screeching “BABY!” I assumed it was a parent to the leaf insect and plan to release them outside. As I’m about to do so my partner walks by with a hamper in hand and the frog climbs it’s back. I begin to fear for my partner and wake up worried. To note: I am currently pregnant.
I was walking up to a tree around dusk time to admire the tree ,I felt alone but my husband was there, as I walked up i noticed movement at the base of the tree (like a burrow) i saw a frog and I picked it up, it was a brownish bullfrog I belive and there was an unusual amount of water coming from him. As i picked it up I notice a smaller frog clamped on to the first frog (between the legs ) and water was just running off them. I said I was weird to my husband and looked back at him he said yea that it weird. Then when I looked back at the frogs tgere were three frogs one my left fore arm.i was so happy that I asked my husband to take a picture of it, but by the time he got his phone out it was to late. I cried so hard that I could feel the gut pain in my sleep. I went to talk to my niece and I noticed he was following some one elese. I didnt the person I just felt abandoned.

It’s not a reptile, but an amphibian.
Hi I did not find the answer to my frog dream. Initially I was dreaming of a squirrel sleeping in my lower left pocket of my baggy shorts but it switched over to me saving these fish from a home that was being poisoned. The bag of fish were open and on the floor. It was full of tiny fish no bigger then my pinky nail. The one that fell from the bag was blue and covered in spines. At the top of the open bag of fish (Don’t know how the water remained in the bag, somehow this massive blue amphibian I could not correctly identify but I’ve settled it being a frog) at the top of this open bag on the floor was a massive blue frog. I picked up the bag to contain the fish and the thing crawled out and over my shoulders so perch it’s self on my head. The person with me removed it from my head (felt like 3 or 5 mounds) and put it back in the bag only for it to immediately perch itself back onto my head. We had to walk back to the unit my partner was in for him to take the blue frog off my head. I remember having this intense feeling of apprehension because the thing was heavy and cold and slimy. It was a contrast to the warm fuzzy feelings I would get when looking into my pocket to see a sleeping squirrel.
