Kids Learn Toad Or Frog?

It was a game of comparisons at Goose Creek State Park Sunday, pitting frogs against toads.

Late Sunday afternoon Park Superintendent Kelley Thompson discussed distinguishing characteristics between toads and frogs during a multi-media presentation followed by a fun, frog activity. Among the frogs on display for the children were Gray and Squirrel Tree frogs and a Southern Leopard frog.

Incidentally, the largest frog in the world is the Goliath or Giant frog of Africa which can weigh more than ten pounds. The Gold frog is among one of the smallest frogs measuring about three eights of an inch.
