    Here are photos of the black growths/spots on my green frog. I really don't want to call them sores because I don't think they are painful to the frog. Any ideas what they are?

    No idea. Only a vet would know for sure.

    It's obviously some sort of bacterial or fungal infection, though what kind I couldn't tell you. You really need to get your frog to a vet as soon as possible. Prey animals such as frogs are very good at masking symptoms, so just because he doesn't appear to be in pain doesn't mean he isn't actually in pain. Any skin infection, especially one as progressed as this, should never be taken lightly.
