Rescued Western Toads...


Click on photo to enlarge

Our friend Bill brought us about 20 Western Toads (Bufo boreas) today that were found trapped in DWP water meter boxes and rescued by meter readers around the valley. This one seemed willing to pose for a picture so I grabbed the camera.

It rained all afternoon and we probably got well over an inch here in the garden (good toad weather).

For some reason, I've lways liked toads and frogs. Never seen one quite like that though.

Thank God for the rescuers and for those to whom the rescued go.
