“Le biologiste passe, la grenouille reste.”*
Do you know the difference between a toad and a frog?
According to my Old Farmer’s Almanac calendar, a toad has a wide body, short hind legs for low-to-the-ground hopping, and a bumpy, dry skin. It lives on dry land.
A frog has a narrow body, long hind legs adapted for leaping and swimming, and a smooth or slimy skin. It lives near water.
