frogs true

Frog, jumping, tailless amphibian. Strictly, the name applies only to true frogs, members of the family Ranidae, but other members of the order Anura (which also includes the toads) are sometimes called frogs. True frogs are characterized by shoulder girdles that are fused down the midline. They are found throughout the world except in the southern parts of South America and Australia.
