Slith's original development name was "toad", Unbible described an aquatic creature named Skaarj Eel/Frog.
So yeah that settles it.

This thread seems a little silly; it would be nice if you could at least provide a concise source/quote from the UnBible for such statements, to give it some meat/context.

Let me link 2 textures from the early '98 prototype.
These textures really do depict some toad like creature, and a thinner slith:

And their 0.83 counterparts:

The Unbible doesn't even come with one actually, says it's a water creature and that is - but it was counted as a creature you could transform to rather than an enemy. The "toad" name for the Slith came from old recovered development materials that aren't public yet as far as I know.
