This is a good question. It is difficult to delineate between toad and frog for a layman. But there are some external features, which make them differentiating. Toads are more ugly than frogs. Then they have large flattened bodies with dry, wrinkled and pimpled skins. The toad’s limbs are shorter. The head is more blunt. The toad spends most of its time on land and it is a slow mover, unlike the frog, which keeps on jumping and hoping.
