Mating toads, Alvar Road. Posted on May 29, 2017 at 00:15:34 AM by Dave Bailey
Spent some time on the Carden Alvar today, found some toads, (Anaxyrus americanus, formerly Bufo americanus) mating in a puddle. Interesting size difference, in the second pair it's remarkable. In the third picture you can clearly see the egg string exuding from the female, and see quite a colour difference. Location was on Alvar Road, east of Wylie Road.
