ABSTRACT
Frog, a small tailless amphibian. Scientifically, there is no distinction between frogs and toads. Both belong to the same order of the class Amphibia, and are collectively called anurans. Popularly, anurans that live in or near freshwater are usually called frogs. They vary in size from certain South American frogs less than one-half inch (13 mm) long to the 10-inch (25-cm) goliath frog of Africa.
