I didn't know that, thank you. You have added new words to my vocab now!

Thanks, but I actually made a mistake with my vocabulary. I didn't knew that we could call a warty frog as 'toad', I thought we could use 'frog' for all Anura. Here in Brazil, we use 'sapo' for species who are usually related to land-living, 'rã' to water-living and 'perereca' to tree-living.

So, I knew it was a 'sapo', but thanks for adding me an important word to my English! I will correct my description. ;]

Well...I disagree with JacobMcelligott that most frogs are not that small (in fact a lot of frogs are that small or smaller), but it is a toad, and the reason is that is a cranial crest and perotoid glands. I can't tell you what species, but I'd start looking through the Bufonidae family.

This is actually a young toad, frog tadpoles are much bigger than those of toads; so, most frogs are not that small.
