10 differences between UK frogs & toads... (that I know from being an amphibian nerd)

And everyone needs to know this of course:



1 - Toads walk whilst frogs will jump (easy one first, you knew that already, yes?)

2 - Frogs lay spawn clumps in the shallows; toads lay strings in the deep water around weed

3 - Toad tadpoles are black with stumpier tails, frogpoles are lighter, bigger, speckly, shy

4 - Frogs have a black 'eye patch' and have spots or stripes (like pool balls)

5 - Toads are nobbly, lumpy-looking things and are dull brown in colour

6 - Frogs have more pointy faces whilst toads have a more rounded smile :)

7 - Frogs usually live in or near the pond whilst toads wander off, living up to maybe a mile away

8 - Frogs & toads return to their birth pond to breed but the toads are covering great distances!

9 - Male toads squeak when other males amorously mount them, frogs say: "get the fuck off me, mate"

10 - Sometimes fish get caught in the fray as this video demonstrates. Fish don't squeak and this is their downfall, in this situation...
