The Sims 4: Frog Collection
Catching and Breeding Frogs
Frogs can be found in Logs and Water Pumps
In The Sims 4, Frogs can be caught and bred to make new types. Finding these little guys is guaranteed when you search a log or water pump (as in Forgotten Grotto). However, they can also be found in ponds, but this requires you to queue up multiple actions in order to catch the slippery critters. I'd do it with the game speed on at least 2, and continually click to add new Search for Frogs interactions with the Pond.
While Frogs were initially set at a rather low value, a patch changed them to be more valuable, particularly for the rarer breeds. You can easily get a few hundred Simoleons by catching frogs for several hours. In this Guide, I'll teach you all you need to know about collecting Frogs with a little help from Forum Member Kresh, who graciously provided information on Frog Breeding Mechanics.

Ponds are the best places to find Frogs
Where to find Frogs
Skip the logs. You may have some luck here and there, but overall scouring each neighborhood for logs is just too time consuming. The best way to do it is to use the three ponds in the game. I first hit up the park in Willow Creek and got a good portion of my collection, probably about half. Afteward, a trip to Sylvan Glade provided some new types of Frogs. After several runs, my Frog collection was missing Spotted Heart, Heartsurfer, Dirtwhirl, Whirlyflower, and the Bullseye frog. Since I hadn't been there, I headed to Oasis Springs park and found all the missing ones.
To me, this provided proof that there are frogs common to all ponds, but different types may be found in each. If you are missing a particular frog, you can breed them to complete your collection. Read more on that below the list of Frogs.

Mechanics of Combining Frogs
As mentioned before, the following information comes from Forum Member Kresh. I'm grateful for this, as it may have taken me some time to figure out myself. As Kresh explained, each Frog has two genes. One type, and one attribute. The table below shows what a frog's type will be when its type has a particular attribute.
Types are like the frog's basic type - they may be Leaf, Dirt, Eggplant, Heart, or Sunflower. An attribute of 'None' produces a frog of that generic type, ("Sunflower Frog", or "Dirt Frog") while spotted, striped, surf, and whirl are other attributes. Since each frog has two variables, you have a 25% chance of getting the desired Frog when combining them. So, take the following example:
A regular Dirt Frog has the 'Type' Dirt and the Attribute 'None'. Combining this with a Spotted Eggplant frog, Eggplant 'Type' and Spotted 'Attribute' may give you either A regular Eggplant Frog, a regular Dirt Frog, a Spotted Dirt Frog or a Spotted Eggplant frog. Gathering numerous frogs and combining intelligently can help you to finish your Frog Collection and get a decorative plaque in the mail. So, if you are missing a Spotted Eggplant Frog, get any kind of Spotted Frog and any type of Eggplant frog and combine them until you get lucky!
To understand this table, A Heart Frog with the Whirl Attribute will be a Bullseye Frog
and A Dirt frog with the Surf Attribute will be a Dirtsurfer Frog. The table will not appear correctly on small mobile devices, so visit on your computer!
