Right. I have a landowner that refers to big hogs and bucks as toads, big fish as hogs, etc. I get the impression that 'toad' means well filled out, spread, or "swole."

It is just an idiom, sort of like big swords being called "pigs." Big swords in no way resemble pigs. Not all idioms are exact or directly representative.

Idioms are slang that I try never to use. Pronghorn antelope are not goats! (Almost never, but I have slipped not often but when it happens I feel a bit stupid.)
