When you look at a frog you will find that the nares or the opening of the nasal cavity are located at the top part of the body. When the frog is in water it can breathe easily as the nares are on the top of the body and usually the frogs can be found at the surface of the water that makes them keep their nares above water and they can breathe easily.

Frogs not only can breathe through the nares but they have the capability to breathe through their skin also. When they are in hibernation or aestivation, the periods when they go under the surface of earth during winter and summer respectively, they use their skin to breathe and lead their life.
