I really don't know if this is a frog or toad...I don't know the difference. The Boy says that toads have bumpy skin and frogs do not. I don't know, nor do I really care (sorry Mr. Amphibian). Again, we live across the street from a lake, so we often have frogs hopping around. This guy is larger than most - he is a little smaller than the palm of my hand. I'm used to seeing the ones that are closer to the size of a thumbnail.
One of these days, I'll get some good shots of the lake to post.
Oh - and by the way...if you are not familiar with the musical, "A Year With Frog and Toad," it is WONDERFUL and your kids will love it. Make sure you SEE it - not just hear it!
