        Most of the people find it difficult to differentiate a frog from a toad. They normally mix them up. Although they seem so similar in appearance, they certainly have numerous dissimilarities too. Frogs are found in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.   Frogs have smooth, wet skin. They live most of the time in or near water.   They have different eye colors including brown, sliver, green, gold and red along with different shapes and sizes of pupil.   Some of the frogs have sticky padding on their feet while others have webbed feet.   It is obvious that not even all the frogs have same qualities.

Usually they have webbed feet.

They eat almost same foods as frogs like bugs insects, fish and ect.
