FROG DEFORMITY DESCRIPTION

*These categories are for use with metamorphosing (4 legs) or adult frogs and toads.
*Start exam from the head and work toward the hind legs, noting any abnormalities seen by checking the boxes below.
*If a deformity is seen that does not fit into one of the categories below, please describe the deformity in the sections marked "other".
*Deformities that are difficult to describe can be drawn in on the frog diagram below.
*NOTE: "Left" and "Right" refer to viewing the frog from above as it would rest normally.
