Frogs & Toads

It's not an exact rule, but one of the most obvious differences between frogs and toads is how they look.

Frogs are generally aquatic or semi-aquatic with smooth, moist, permeable skins, whereas toads are usually thought to be terrestrial with dry, warty skin.

Many frogs have long, powerful hind legs and are exceptional jumpers. They can be found from the tropics to the subarctic regions, but the highest numbers of species are found in the tropical rainforests.
