We have 5 or 6 here. We named each one "Mr. Toad". They hop to my garage
when the light is on, and snap up june bugs and moths by the hundreds. When
we were kids, we would play "leadbelly" by rolling #00 buckshot down a board
toward them. They would glump down the shot until they could hardly hop.
Kids can be mean. I try to make up for it by being nice to toads. I even
stop mowing when the toadlets are swarming over my yard.

Only down side to toads is when they get really big. You know what they say.
"Big toad, big poop".

Waaaaaaa! I still want toads! Six years with a pond, living adjacent to
about the last woods in the area, and no toads! Deer, yes. Toads, no.

When I had my small 125 gallon pond I had 9 toads that
would hang out every morning after the party the night before.
So funny, yet cute, to see them hanging with their "elbows"
on the side of the pond. Heads would turn this way and that.
Just like they were talkin' ... Shoulda got a picture of it.

I had toads spawn the first year I put in my pond. They
have never returned. :-(
