Toad

Timothy Toad sits happily beneath a mushroom waiting out the rain. He will go and take his seat at the edge of the pond after the rain. The rain doesn't really bother him what he likes is to sit back and watch all the rain dancing off the water and knowing how that dancing rain is stirring up some nice dinner morsels along the shore line.

The western toad is readily identified by its dry, warty skin and a pronounced, oval poison gland on each cheek behind the eye. Toads breed in ponds, slow streams, shallow lake edges and when not breeding can be seen in wetlands, meadows or forests. The colors range from greenish to tan, grey, brown or black. More information is available through B.C. Frog Watch. http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/wld/frogwatch/
