Actually, all Toads are really Frogs!!!
True Frogs are members of the Ranidae family which
have more than 400 species. The characteristics of Frogs and Toads are:
|two big bulging eyes
Frogs tend to lay their eggs in clusters
|small stumpy bodies that have short hind legs
(for walking instead of jumping)
warty and dry skin because they usually prefer dryer climates
they have paratoid (or poison) glands behind the eyes
The chest cartilage of Toads is different.
Toads tend to lay their eggs in long chains.
