Am­phib­ian was a frog

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

RE­GARD­ING the pho­to­graph of the am­phib­ian in the Evening Tele­graph on June 22 – I would say it was def­i­nitely a frog.

The com­mon frog is olive green or brown, with smooth skin.

Their pupils are pro­tu­ber­ant, and bulge out, un­like the eyes of toads.

The com­mon toad has a brown, warty skin, with golden eyes, and their pupils are hor­i­zon­tal.

Frogs hop, whereas toads tend to crawl.

A pho­to­graph ob­vi­ously doesn’t move, but the pho­tog­ra­pher will have seen this lit­tle frog hop away if it de­cided to make a get­away.
