Froggy and run, you will follow him to the Egg Carrier.

go to the centre and push the switch. The room will be full of 
water. See that tunnel on the left? Swim to it and go through it, 
now swim up and go through the tunnel. In this room get on the 
metal container. You must pull the water plug by aiming your cursor 
on the plug in the middle of the room. Aim carefully and you will 
do it. After youíre done the water will go down; now get back through 
the tunnels to the room. Now Froggy will be swimming around. Fined 
him and catch him.
