What's the Difference Frog and Frog?
According to, LIPI herpetologist, the mention of frogs or frogs actually follows the concept of English and its morphology.
Do you know the difference between frog and toad? Are they both of the same kind? Is the voice of "rekotok rekotok" which is often heard on the edge of time is the sound of a frog? Do frogs and toads have environmental benefits? Amir Hamidy, the herpetologist from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), has the answer. According to Amir, the mention of frogs or frogs actually follows the concept of English and its morphology. In naming English, the term toad for frogs, while frog for frogs, as it presents two tribes. Frogs come from the Bufoidae Tribe, while the frogs of the Ranidae Tribe. "Judging from morphology, most frogs are more cloudy while frog skin is more subtle." Amir continues, in fact in Indonesia, many species that when viewed in morphology not only represent the tribe Bufonidae and Ranidae only. "In West Java alone, there are six tribes representing both. Any mention of any kind must be synergistic with the systematics and nomenclature of zoology, "said Amir who is Head of Herpetology Laboratory of Zoology Field of Biology LIPI, Cibinong.
