Is it a toad, or is it a frog?

All toads are frogs, but not all frogs are toads. Toads generally have bumpy, dry skin and spend their adult lives on land--though they must return to water to lay eggs. Though toads are frogs, those animals that have a "frog" in their name are usually found near water (true frogs) or in the trees (tree frogs). The herp cards and coloring sheets on this page will help students get a better understanding of which is which. Download a herp card PDF

We live in a galaxy known as the Milky Way -- a vast conglomeration of 300 billion stars, planets whizzing around them, and clouds of gas and dust floating in between. Though it has long been known that the Milky Way and its orbiting companion Andromeda are the dominant members of a small group of g...
