It's been years since I've held a toad. My dad found this little toad near our patio area.  How lovely is he?

After naming this blog 'Froggy', my brothers friend said it was in fact a toad. For those of you that don't you know the difference between toads and frogs...

'The big question is what is the difference between frogs and toads? The problem with this question is that there isn’t an easy answer because toads ARE frogs, or at least they are in the frog family.

Frogs have smooth, wet skin that looks slimy. Toads have drier, rough skin that looks really bumpy, like warts. This is where the myth comes from that you will get warts when you touch a toad, but that just isn’t true. Toads do have a weird smell and yucky taste to their skin, though. This is to keep bigger animals from wanting to eat them.'

Well you learn something new everyday!
