Frog or Toad?

Political frog(Toad), just like flower that has been attacked by insect
Look at the flower, is it ugly? look at the small flower beside it, unspoited,
which is more beautiful.

Jump,jump, jump....

The frog is an amphibian in the order Anura (meaning "tail-less", from Greek an-, without + oura, tail), formerly referred to as Salientia (Latin saltare, to jump).

Frogs are generally recognized as exceptional jumpers, and the best jumper of all vertebrates. The Australian rocket frog, Litoria nasuta, can leap over 50 times their body length (5.5 cm), resulting in jumps of over 2 meters. The acceleration of the jump may be up to twice gravity. There are tremendous differences between species in jumping capability, but within a species, jump distance increases with increasing size, but relative jumping distance (body-lengths jumped) decreases.

Many frogs are able to absorb water and oxygen directly through the skin, especially around the pelvic area. However, the permeability of a frog's skin can also result in water loss. Some tree frogs reduce water loss with a waterproof layer of skin. Others have adapted behaviours to conserve water, including engaging in nocturnal activity and resting in a water-conserving position.

Many frogs contain mild toxins that make them unpalatable to potential predators. For example, all toads have large poison glands—the parotoid glands—located behind the eyes on the top of the head. Some frogs, such as some poison dart frogs, are especially toxic. The chemical makeup of toxins in frogs varies from irritants to hallucinogens, convulsants, nerve poisons, and vasoconstrictors. Many predators of frogs have adapted to tolerate high levels of these poisons. Others, including humans, may be severely affected.

The skin of a frog is permeable to oxygen and carbon dioxide, as well as to water. There are a number of blood vessels near the surface of the skin. When a frog is underwater, oxygen is transmitted through the skin directly into the bloodstream.

Si-Katak lompat

Katak lompat,

Dari sungei lompat ke tanah,
satu ekor,dua ekor, tiga ekor,
alah, empat ekor pula.

Mengapa lompat, Si-Katak?
Tiaada makanan sedap di dalam air?.
Bukan, cari pluang/lubang di atas tanah.

Makanan apa? Kuasa, Pangkat, Wang???
atau untuk communiti katak,
cari tempat yang lebih sesuai untuk semua katak?

Bila sampai Tanah,
Banyak, banyak kesempatan.....
tetapi binatang liar juga banyak,
bukan semua katak bolih hidup senang.
Lagi kurang air, kotor tempat nya......

Si Katak, bangun lah
Dunia katak terkotor sebab tindakan kamu,
Communiti katak kecewa,
Tindakan lompat sudah pecahkan ,
amanah communiti katak yang di berikan
..............kepada kamu.

Sedih.....Si Katak lupakan kulit katak.

The song of the frog/Toad is for the remembrance of the days where the democracy is belittled, where the mandate of people was not respected.

A black day of the river,just because of hopping toad. I called the political hopper toad now; no more frog. Their skin is now different, from a clean and moisture skin; it become a dry rough skin. They have changed their skin, their original belief. Ugly....the frog who jump, against the wishes of majority are Toad.....just ugly.

A distinction is often made between frogs and toads on the basis of their appearance, caused by the convergent adaptation among so-called toads to dry environments; however, this distinction has no taxonomic basis. The only family exclusively given the common name "toad" is Bufonidae, but many species from other families are also called "toads"

Frogs and Toads

"What is the difference between Frogs and Toads?"

Most are surprised to hear that all Toads actually are Frogs!

For readers who want to know the difference, please visit

The physical distinctions, however, can easily get blurred because sometimes the features appear mixed or less obvious, and certain species even legitimately fall into both categories. It is not uncommon, for example, to find a warty skinned frog that isn't a toad, or even a slimy toad! Even the more invisible stuff like cartilage structure has been found to sometimes fit both categories! ( source:

See, how ugly is the Toad, they can hide and become frog, next election please beware of political Toad.

Undilah baik baik, kalau tidak dia lompat, kita sakit kepala.
