UK Safari Tip:
To help you identify amphibians there's a beautifully illustrated fold out chart in the Nature Shop - click here


• The skin of a frog is quite smooth, and a toad is more 'warty'.

• A frog feels moist to the touch, but a toad feels dry.

• A frogs back is raised with two ridges down each side. Toads have a more flattened appearance.

• Frogs move around by hopping on their strong back legs, but toads walk.
