Now if you are a bit squeamish, you might want to skip this post. We seem to have a large colony of toads. On nearly any given night I can look out my window onto the porch and find one visiting. The following day I often find their poop has been left behind. When sweeping it out to the grass, it often disingrates and if you take a close look you can find all kind of bug carcasses. They seem to have trouble digesting wings. I know, this is gross - but it's my duty to report what I see. These toads don't hop...they crawl. I leave for work when it's still dark outside and I often see them sitting on the curb soaking up water from the sprinklers. They sit still when I watch them but if I take my eyes off them for just a few seconds they will quickly move out of sight. Unfortunately, with so many toads we have unintentionally squished a few. I was surprised to find the black blood.
