Which is a frog and which is a toad?

they look and smell similar, so how are they different?

If you get right down to it, frogs and toads are very similar. Both are small, green, cold-blooded, and they kinda look exactly same. But the truth is, they’re completely different. OK, we know one of them is a reptile and one of them is an amphibian, but what does that mean? Do they lay eggs or what? What’s going on with those bulging eyes? All of these questions and more will be answered at the Family Frog and Toad Find Out at the Chippewa Falls Public Library on April 11. You can bring your whole family to finally settle the classic dinner table debate: “Do frogs really say ‘Ribbit?’” A naturalist from the Beaver Creek Reserve will be there to answer any and all frog-and-toad-related questions while you and kids can make crafts, play the frog song game, and enjoy froggy treats (which probably don’t include actual frog). As far as reptile/amphibian events in the Chippewa Valley go, this is clearly one of the best.
