We suddenly have tiny toads hopping everywhere in the yard. All the rain we’ve had lately may have had something to do with their appearance! The toads are so small that when I first saw one, I thought it was an insect or spider. I scooped up a couple of them and took a few photos.

Two tiny toads near the end of a ruler. The bigger toad is probably 1/2 inch long; the smaller one maybe around 1/3 of an inch.


The two toads by the ruler again. The white specks on them are grains of sand from the area where I found them.
