My dad found some frogs or toads in our front yard the other day. They are less than an inch long. How do I find out what kind of frog or toad they are? If I buy a frog from Walmart, will they live together? WHat about a fish?
Thank you,

Go to www.google.com and search for photos of toads and frogs. Or describe it here and someone can give you a better idea. But it's probably a toad unless you live right near water.
No to the frog from Walmart, and no to the fish. *1. You shouldn't mix species, *2. toads are not aquatic, and *3. frogs would either drown with nowhere to get out, or escape the aquarium.

Go to www.google.com and search for photos of toads and frogs.

You can also google for "amphibians of Indiana", or whatever state it is that you happen to live in. Hopefully this will turn up a list of frogs and toads from your state, possibly even with pictures.

If they are full grown at that size, they would be some type of robber frog. I always loved catching them when I was a kid. My garter snake also liked it when I fed them to him.

I wouldn't put a Wal-Mart frog or a fish with those frogs if I were you. The frogs I've seen at Wal-Mart are either African clawed frogs or the dwarf clawed frogs that stay under water all the time. If your frogs lived on land then they are probably not a good mix for those underwater frogs.

There's always the spread of bacteria from one frog (or fish to another). This can make froggies & fishies sick.
If you have or like those Wal-Mart froggies enough or already have please keep them in a different tank away from the ones your dad found.

Some freshwater fish may be able to live with the Wal-Mart frogs, but you should have the frogs & fish close to the same size so they don' eat each other. Some frogs & fish really grow so you may want to read befor putting you frogs from Wal-Mart & fish together.
