Toad Prints

Young toad name: tadpole, toadlet

A group of toads is called: knot, lump, coven

Toad classification: ranine, batrachian

Toad class: Amphibian

A toad can refer to a number of species of amphibians in the order Anura. A distinction is often made between frogs and toads by their appearance, prompted by the convergent adaptation among so-called oads to dry habitats. Many toads often have leathery skin for better water retention, and a brown coloration for camouflage. They also tend to burrow. However, these adaptations are not reliable indicators of its ancestry. Because taxonomy reflects only evolutionary relationships, any distinction between frogs and toads is irrelevant to their classification.

For instance, many members of the frog families Bombinatoridae, Discoglossidae, Pelobatidae, Rhinophrynidae, Scaphiopodidae, and some species from the Microhylidae family are commonly called oads. However, the only family exclusively given the common name toad is Bufonidae, or the true toads. Some true frogs of the genus Rana have also adapted to burrowing habitats, while a bufonid species in the genus Atelopus are conversely known by the common name harlequin frogs. Similarly to frogs, toads also display metamorphosis from tadpole to sexually mature adult.
