We think toads are toadally cool!
We teach participants in The HERP Project* programs to catch, identify, weigh and measure toads and other frogs as well as salamanders, snakes, lizards and turtles. We have found toads to be common, easier to catch and hold than frogs, and hardy animals to use with novices. Our participants enjoy asking and answering such questions as:
(1) Which toads of the same species are bigger, adult males or adult females?
(2) How can you tell toad species apart?; and
(3) How can you tell male toads from female toads?
