In the world of make-believe, kissing a frog could turn him into a prince.

In real life, touching them can kill the creatures and cause serious problems for humans, too.

April is National Frog Month.

The head of the Turtle Back Zoo in New Jersey says while most people probably know that touching frogs and toads won't give you warts, frogs can transmit diseases.

He says they can give humans tapeworm cysts and salmonella poisoning.

Both can cause serious complications if not treated quickly.
