There are many differences between frog, frog and tree frog

Frogs

Frogs have a drier and rougher skin than other frogs. In addition, they prefer to live on land and only seek aquatic environments when they will reproduce.

The frog's hind legs are shorter, so they can't make big leaps like frogs. Due to the glands it has in the dorsal region, when the frog experiences some external pressure (such as being stepped on), it releases a poison that can irritate our eyes and mucous membranes.

Frogs

They are the most skilled among these three types of frogs. Its longer hind limbs help in jumping and swimming. They can jump up to 1.5 meters long and 70 centimeters high.

They live mainly in ponds and have a very smooth and shiny skin. Its toxins are located in the back regions.

Unlike frogs and tree frogs, frogs are used for food as they have a smooth and nutritious meat that vaguely resembles chicken meat.

Tree frogs

Typically, tree frogs are smaller than frogs or frogs, with bulging eyes as well as being more colorful.

They do not like ponds, prefer to live in trees. With long, slender legs, they are capable of great heels and attaching themselves to surfaces, as they have discs at their fingertips, which act as suction cups and allow this attachment. Like frogs, they have very smooth skin.

They belong to several families. They are often found in home bathrooms as they like humid environments.
