Frogs & toads (scientifically called Anurans) are short-bodied, tailless amphibians accounting for over 85% real life extant amphibian species, and one of the five most diverse vertebrate orders. They generally have a stout, dumpy body, protruding eyes that they use to push food down their throats, limbs folded underneath the body (often used for hopping), and the absence of a tail in the adults. They can be poisonous. There is no real genetic difference between frogs and toads, and instead it is just a naming choice -- warty members are often referred to as toads while smooth-skinned species tend to be called frogs.
