Here it is just days after the first Toad invasion of the year.
I have Thousands of eggs on hundreds of strands in the fish pond. I suspect if the last couple of years are any indication I will have about a 70 % survival rate. Great for the Toads as well as us really.
The Bafo b americanus ( Eastern American Toad) is a great hunter of insects and un-wanted creatures of the garden.. These guys when they leave the pond will be the size of a pinky finger nail. They are truly small when they leave and when they do, it is a black carpet of moving souls. We have no shortage of these creatures in my neighbour-hood. I wonder why!!!
