Now, The Little Guys Are Everywhere

I knew that the big day was coming. The day when the baby toads would come out of our pond to face the world. I was working on my wife’s car trying to change out a very rusty rear subframe and needed to take a break. So, I walked over to check on the progress of the baby toads and there they were all around the shady side of the pond on the bank breathing air for the first time. So, the date of their exodus turned out to be May 19th -this year anyway.

As tiny as they are in only 1 week’s time they have spread out over a distance of 100ft or more. The tranformation of an aquatic almost fishlike creature into a 10mm long land loving toad is an amazing feat of engineering. The Person that engineered these toads knew what He was doing!
