Default Toads or Frogs

IIRC toad spawn is produced in long strings.

Richard Savage scribbled:

Can anyone help me differentiate between frog- and toad-spawn? Or
redirect me to a more appropriate forum for this question?

I have two ponds; one (the older) has always hosted frog-spawn, the
newer pond has a large ball of what looks like frog-spawn but the eggs
(?) are larger and more distinct and spherical than the frog-spawn
which is a more amorphous mass. It, the unknown spawn, is on the
bottom of the new pond but this is probably because there is no
vegetation for it to attach to.

Both bundles (?) of spawn are producing tadpoles at present.
