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.
