As fans of the moist weather

8/29/13 – As fans of the moist weather we’ve been enduring, many juvenile American Toads have been inhabiting the area. An adult male and female American Toad can produce anywhere from 2,000 to 20,000 fertilized eggs at a time. She will lay them carefully in gelatinous strings in her laying site. After 2 weeks, tadpoles will hatch. And after 6-10 more weeks, they will metamorphose into toadlets. Thousands will emerge from the laying site. So if you’re planning to pay Sawbill a visit anytime soon, watch your step for the many camouflaged toads! – Nicole
