Frogs are often thought of as amphibians that resemble fish but they are actually very different creatures. For one frogs are tetrapods meaning they have four legs (or at least they did at some point in their evolutionary history) while fish are not. Additionally frogs typically have moist smooth skin while fish have scales. frogs also have different diets than fish; they are mostly carnivorous and eat insects while fish are mostly herbivores or omnivores and eat plants and other small creatures.
There are some similarities between frogs and fish of course. They both live in water they both have tails and they both have eyes on the sides of their heads. But these characteristics are not unique to either frogs or fish; many other animals have them as well. So while frogs may resemble fish in some ways they are definitely not the same creatures.
