Lucky's Pond: Fashion Statement

Lucky's Pond: Fashion Statement
I've discovered that froglets have a great sense of style! Just take a look at this cutie pie, who's wearing the latest in natural froggy fashion decor, positioned at a jaunty angle for maximum effect! This little guy is sure to be the talk of the pond, and I'm sure that tomorrow all the froglets will be showing off their very own fashion statements! :D

Do you know the differences between a frog and a toad? The first thing to know is that all toads are frogs, but not all frogs are toads! :D

☻ Frogs have long hind legs for jumping and swimming; toads have short legs for walking.

☻ Frogs are more slender and long; toads are more squat and chunky.

☻ Frogs have smooth, moist ("slimy") skin; toads have dry, wart-covered skin.

☻Frogs usually prefer wet climates with easy access to water; toads usually prefer drier climates.

☻ Frogs usually lay eggs in clusters; toads usually lay eggs in long chains.

☻ Frogs do not have poison glands behind their eyes; toads do. (Animals seem to know that toads are poisonous--our dogs smell toads but that's it!)

To make things confusing, there are a few species that have characteristics of both frogs and toads!
