When I was a young boy we would see these toads all around Houston. I enjoyed seeing them when they were mating in bar ditches, leaving long strands of eggs, that would turn to thousands of tadpoles. They are not as common today due to the destructive forces of man. However, they seem to be strong in some areas.

I took this photo at night as the Gulf Coast Toad was hopping on a sidewalk.

  2. I miss the myriad numbers of toads and frogs that live in Texas. We don’t have so many of them here in the southwestern desert that we call San Diego.
