Depending on the species, narrow-mouthed frogs may live in southern North America, central and northern South America, Central America, southern Africa and Madagascar, southeast Asia including the Philippines and the East Indies, and/or northern Australia and New Guinea.


Some native people in South America, New Guinea, and perhaps some other areas eat narrow-mouthed frogs, but they do not take enough of the frogs to threaten the survival of any species. A few species, such as the Malaysian painted frog, are fairly common in the pet trade. Most, however, are rarely seen by humans in the wild or in the pet trade.
