Toad Vs Frog – Crocodile Vs Alligator – Hare Vs Rabbit – Turtle Vs Tortoise

What is that creature which hops, small and kind of ugly usually found in damped areas? Frog right? NO, its a toad. There are many species which are similar but are insanely different. Fret not! It’s time to become wiser..smarter.

All I want is to not look stupid in front of my 10-year old niece when she corrects me saying, “It’s a toad, not a frog!”


I decided to dig into this and clear my confusion once and for all. Googling the keyword is all that takes but we know how procrastination works.

Anyway, here is what I found about the major difference between these living species which has always bothered me. Since I don’t believe in textual explanation for this kind of topics, here are some pictorial references:

    Please correct the text in image for turtle vs tortoise. It does not tell which one of the two is turtle and the other one as tortoise.
