Could be the weather to.
I have a lot of toads. Warty looking toads, green sticky footed toads that can cling to windows and tree toads who make a racket in the night. It's really dry here, so I don't know why there are so many of them, but they are welcome. I like toads.
With as much rain as we have had in the northwest I suspect they moved here. The slugs sure did. Stepped on one in bare feet.
Considering how confused you seem to be Fraz...they might be frogs and not toads. :-) Google it mmmk?
Toads absorb water through their skin.
Old timers would say you may have a snake....or just someone that likes to eat them....lol
Yep...there you go...You just might have one somewhere...be careful walking around or picking things up...
They all got swept away by the undertoad
