Why do frogs produce such a large number of gamates at one time

Answer

To have better chances of survival and propogation of species External fertilization, common in organisms that live underwater such as fish and frogs, increases the number of eggs that sperm encounter.
Not only does this result in a greater number of offspring, but it generates more genetic diversity.
Internal fertilization e.g. in mice also has the advantage of producing four to eight pups after mating thus increasing diversity.
