Lots of news of the frog and toad kind.
We went to the San Antonio zoo to see their "Toadally" exhibit. It is part of the Amphibian Ark campaign to raise awareness about the amphibian extinction crisis.
I was so surprised and almost cried when i got a certificate from frogwatch U.S.A. I monitor the frog and toad population around my house. which has been low with the recent heat and drought but with the rain yesterday and today, I have already begun to see toads.
We rescued this toad from the park - she is unable to use one of her back legs and was stranded in the grass - maybe as a result of an encounter with a dog - i don't know - but i have made her a habitat and buy her crickets so she has a safe place to recover.
