The term ‘frog’ is very broad and covers many different species and can even be applied to toads. Frogs and toads can sometimes be difficult to tell apart. Frogs tend to be found near water, they have smooth skin and hop more than they walk. Toads have shorter legs, and dry, warty skin. Those descriptions work most of the time, but not all since there are smooth-skinned toads and frogs that live far from water. There is little real need to tell the difference between a frog and a toad, however, since they are so closely related that they are often grouped together.
