  1. Yes, fishes and frogs can respire through their skin.
  2. The larval stage of frog i. e. tadpole respires through gills. During metamorphosis, tadpoles lose their gills and develop lungs.
  3. Frogs do not have scales and breathe through their skin underwater.
  4. Fishes respire primarily via gills. The body of fishes is covered with scales which limits cutaneous respiration in them.
