Just Found A Toad In The Garden

Yes, but I didnt lick it though(too early in the day, saving it for later...j/k),

 

I was turning over the organic compost heap, and nearly got it with the fork, lucky hit, just saw it in time.

 

What's strange is that there are no ponds, or streams for at least half a mile away, and its all urban development in between, So it looks like an adult, how could it have got there?, and tell me which unexpected strange creatures have you encountered in your garden?

Oh teh possibilities.

 

Toads/frogs are good biological indicators... eg. it means pollution/contamination is NOT that bad around where you live.

I think frogs are the ones who prefer water. toads like to live on land and dry environments.

No shame, they're poisonous and an invasive species. We're required to kill any found

OK, they always breed in wet places though?
