• Most people are surprised to learn that all toads actually are frogs. Generally speaking, though, when we think of frogs, we picture what are called "True Frogs," members of the family Ranidae, containing more than 400 species. These frogs have the characteristics of: two bulging eyes; strong, long, webbed hind feet that are adapted for leaping and swimming; smooth or slimy skin (generally, frogs tend to like moister environments); and frogs tend to lay eggs in clusters. The term toads tends to refer to "True Toads," members of the family Bufonidae, containing more than 300 species. These types of frogs are characterized by: stubby bodies with short hind legs (for walking instead of hopping); warty and dry skin (usually preferring dryer climates) ; paratoid (or poison) glands behind the eyes; and toads tend to lay eggs in long chains.
