  • Frogs and toads are seen side by side for easy comparison. Presenter Bill Oddie explains how to tell them apart and the key features to look for when identifying them. Frogs have skin which looks wet even when they are out of the water and a throat which is a whitish colour. Toads have warty looking skin and their overall colour is beige or khaki. There are opportunities for the viewer to identify a series of frogs and toads before labels confirm the answers.
