They are great beast's. I seem to have loads of toads in my garden. I am always worried by the prevalence of small ones about in the Autumn, wonder if they will make it through the winter. Anytime i pick something up there is a toad underneath! I wonder at the colour variation but having looked through this site they and frogs are certainly diverse in colour.

Wonderful photos of so many different colour forms from one site. It indicates the colour is not dependent on any environmental influence, for example, soil type or colour.
