What is the difference between frogs and toads? The short answer is there are no differences. Frogs can refer to any species in the Order Anura, so all toads are frogs. So what is a toad? Toads usually refer to members of the family Bufonidae – the True Toad family. There are other families that are considered toads such as the family Scaphiopodidae – American Spadefoot Toad Family. So now, are toads just members of select families? Nope. There are random species that are named toad instead of frog. The Suriname Toad is referred to as a toad but it’s from the family Pipidae and generally spends its life in the water. So yeah, frogs and toads are annoying.
