Amphibian & Reptile Conservation is the place to learn about frogs, toads and spawn, find tips to help, report sightings and FAQ to answer concerns. Aside from North American bullfrogs (illegally released in the wild), other amphibians are native to England. Frogs jump (and don’t have warts). Toads ‘walk’ and do have warts!
Both like ponds (use sloping sides and avoid netting) but can live in most damp areas. See the post on how to build a garden pond (which also covers pet-toxic plants and wildlife hazards to avoid).
Use garden shears over strimmers. Or if you are determined to use strimmers, at least sweep through the area with a broom first, to allow sleeping amphibians to escape.
You can sign up as a toad lollipop lady to help migrating toads cross roads at night, whatever the weather!
A Day in the Life of Frogs is a beautifully illustrated guide fset over 24 hours to show what frogs, toads and spawn get up to all day. Meet amphibians from around the world including rampaging toads, seethrough frogs and tiny tadpoles. Read more about the world’s most amazing frogs and toads. Witness incredible moments like a frog turning blue, a wolverine frog (that shoots claws from beneath its skin) and a female frog that absorbs frogspawn into her own skin!
