FROGS vs.  TOADS

Many people don’t know the difference between frogs and toads.  They are quite different animals, although they belong to the same animal group.

Frogs:

  • Need to live near water
  • Have smooth, moist skin that makes them look “slimy”.
  • Have a narrow body 
  • Have higher, rounder, bulgier eyes
  • Have longer hind legs 
  • Take long high jumps
  • Have many predators

Toads:

  • Do not need to live near water to survive
  • Have rough, dry, bumpy skin
  • Have a wider body
  • Have lower, football shaped eyes
  • Have shorter, less powerful hind legs
  • Will run or take small hops rather than jump
  • Do not have many predators.  Toad’s skin lets out a bitter taste and smell that burns the eyes and nostrils of its predators, much like a skunk does.

And neither frogs nor toads will give you warts! That is just a myth.
