WHAT IS THE TOAD?


Toads tend to be solitary, living under logs and stones, often well away from the water. They hibernate here usually from about mid-October to mid-March. Toads hibernate in burrows or bury themselves in mud. Toads are cold-blooded and their body processes slow down as the outside temperature drops. When spring arrives, the toads emerge from hibernation and migrate to breeding ponds, often in huge numbers.



Toads produce vast numbers of young - providing there are suitable habitats for spawning. Amphibians spend most of their adult lives out of water and it is therefore crucial that there are transitional areas between water and dry land to enable them to survive. These transitional areas provide the habitat in which the the newly emerged and older adults can survive.

Toads are carnivores - they eat other animals, typically bugs and worms. Toads are beneficial to humans, because they eat so many insect pests. The life span of Common Toads in captivity may be as high as 20-40 years, but in the wild, it is more likely to be 10 - 12 years.
