    Is this a frog or toad? This little fellow was sitting on my grill cover the other afternoon. We live in a pretty wooded area, could he be a tree frog? We always here them but I have yet to see one. So I had my shed keys and my phone and I snapped a couple pics.

    Did you put the DuraCoat on him or did he come that way with his own?


    Frogs need water, toads don't (so much) I think he is a frog, but I am no expert.


    One way you can tell is to cook up his legs and see if they taste like chicken.

    Hey NoNock1, It's a tree frog. I'm in northwest In. & we live in a wooded area and have them all over. They climb up on our sliding glass doors and have little suction cup like pads on the end of their fingers & toes. I love their camo pattern! Hope this helps. Bill W.

    If it speaks French, it's a Frog:)

    What you have pictured is just a plain ole toad.

    Edit: Frogs generally have smooth skin and toads are somewhat bumpy.

    If it's red and green and can get to 10,000 rpm's. It's probably a frog in a blender.

    Pick him up and let him piss in your hand. If you get warts, it's a toad. If not, it's a frog.

    I think it is a toad - you can find out for sure by licking his backside a couple of times. If you start tripping you brains out in about 10 minutes you know its a toad - if it just tastes like a bad time in Bangcock then you have a frog .....

    Nok,

    Your "new best friend" is a Toad. Toads and frogs are amphibians but are from two different families. Toads have knobby, dry feeling skin that looks like lichens on tree bark and frogs have smooth, moist, almost velvety skin. Toads say "ribbit." Frogs sing.

    Put on a stick, dipped in a honey/cinnamon coating, fried and topped with a white sugary glaze?

    You have a TREE FROG.If you have a wooded area around your house they will come to your house to feed. They make a sound you will not forget. Toads only need water to bred and lay eggs.frogs stay in water over 95% Henry

    See if he has the little suction cups on his toes. If he does, it is a tree frog. If he does not it's likely a toad. Because he was on your grill cover, he is more than likely a tree frog. Toads don't climb on objects like that because they lack the suction cups to get up that high.

    The OP pic is a frog. Toads have two large bumps behind each eye called parotid glands, frogs don't.
