We Found A Friend at the Park
While at a park in the big KY state (Kentucky) we found a silly little toad. This toad had us all baffled and acted as if playing games as they tried to catch it. It was hopping around and then would sit still but for just a second then to hop again. What a fun game this was finally he was caught. The cute little toad ended up being as we found out later was a fowlers toad
Fowlers toad is normally only 2.5 to 5 inches long. Our toad was brown with a blotched back but others are yellow or green but must all have a light stripe down the middle of their backs. Makes a sound that is similar to that of a sheep with a cold. They are normally found in sandy areas near marches, backyards and temporary pools. Normally nocturnal and breed in march to august when they lay strings of eggs.
