Common Toad, Bufo bufo
If it’s a bad night owling and there’s no Tawny Owls showing, you can always rely on Toads being about! I took this image several years ago with my favourite lens ever which is the 105mm Macro and its probably the sharpest lens I’ve ever owned. Toads eyes are also incredibly gorgeous!! Nikon D500 + Nikon 105mm F2.8 VR Macro, F10, ISO 400, 1/200 + Nikon SB-600

🐸 Серая или обыкновенная жаба (Bufo bufo)

В мае 2011 г. я был одним из участников экспедиции в #мордовскийзаповедник. И мы туда попали в аккурат во время размножения серых жаб.

Что там творилось по берегу водоема и в воде... Страшно описывать, а то аккаунт забанят. Такое не в одном немецком порно не увидишь. Жабы были повсюду и буквально нужно было смотреть под ноги, чтобы не раздавить какого-нибудь мелкого самца.

На самом деле, в этом нет ничего удивительного. Хотя, я согласен, это очень занятно смотрится в живую. Дело в том, что у серых жаб, на одну самку может претендовать до 20 особей самцов, которые образуют вокруг нее копошащийся клубок. Но лично я, больше 6 самцов на одной самке не видел.

При этом у них, так называемое, ассортативное (зависящее от размеров) спаривание - когда самые крупные оттесняют более мелких. Даже если мелкий самец, залез на самку раньше крупного.

Зато после, почти 2х суток наблюдения за жабами, я понял, откуда немецкие режиссёры подобных фильмов черпают свои идеи 🙂

Last night mull had a mealworm, he's had one reasonably sized one every night with his crickets for quite some time now, and always gets it down no problem. However, last night he had some trouble getting it down the way he took it and it tried to get out through his throat in a struggle before he eventually swallowed it. Immediately following the event, he puffed out his throat and has been less active than normal. He is still like this today and I can't find any resources online about this. Does anyone have some insight? #americantoad #americantoads #bufonidae #commontoad #toads #toadcare #amphibians #reptilecare #frogs

Favorite wild animal and the most magical eyes.🧡 Usually rare in my neighborhood but this summer we had several, both large and small.

Obična krastača ( Bufo bufo ) se sprema za zimski san. Najčešće hibernira u raznim rupama u tlu ili čak podrumima ali retko kada u tekućim vodama. Često zajedno sa drugim gmizavcima i vodozemcima.

GB: Common toad ( Bufo bufo )
Getting ready for winter slumber. The most common places would be in various holes in the ground, sometimes basements, often in droves with other amphibians. Rarely they spend the winter in flowing waters.

Have you ever seen a more majestic creature than the common American toad? I doubt it. •

Common toads are a common sight at Trelusback. This one was discovered by one of our volunteers today whilst clearing some bracken and moved to a safe place. One striking feature of the common toad is the horizontal slit shaped pupils seen clearly here.

My log pile was looking abit bleak so I bagged up some leaves which had fallen from the trees over the road & put them on top 🍂I actually laid some hay down before piling them on; to act as an insulation against the cold 🌧 What ever is living inside will hopefully now have a much warmer winter 🌨 I haven't seen the frog in my garden for a few weeks now, I hope that he is snug inside the big log pile 🐸 I found this toad around October time in a shop; he was a Halloween decoration & instantly feel in love 😂 I was like you will make a perfect garden ornament lol. Log piles are important as they can be homes for insects & small mammals such as hedgehogs & mice 🐭 They provide a place to live all year round but especially in the winter months as the weather gets harsher 🦔 #Toad #CommonToad #Amphibian #Amphibians #LogPile #Herptology #Herping #Animals #Animal #ReptileLove #UKWildlife #BritishWildlife #WinterWatch #Gardening #PhotoOfTheDay #WilderFuture #LoveNature #InstaGood #InstaMood #LikeForLikes #WildlifeTrust #Snakes #SnakesOfInstagram #Nature #LizardsOfInstagram #Lizards #ReptileLover #Wildlife #Igers #LetNatureSing

Flythrough of my little fernery🌿🌿 This was an experiment over summer to see how well ferns would do in an enclosed tank, as I had little experience with keeping them. It went much better than expected!
I also transplanted a couple of woodland plants in there; Oxalis sp., dog violet (Viola riviniana), and common bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis) all of which have been doing really well. There's already an established population of invertebrates to keep the plants and soil healthy.

This tank will eventually contain my two common toads, who I hope are looking forward to hunting between the ferns!🐸🐸 #fernery #ferns #commontoad #bufobufo #toad #pteridomania

Common toad, SEM
Color enhanced scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a young common toad (Bufo bufo), showing its large eyes and mouth, and its warty skin. Toads project their long sticky tongue (pink) out of their mouth to catch prey. Young common toads eat small insects whilst adults eat invertebrates such as insects, larvae, spiders, slugs and worms.

A trio of toads 🐸💚 Make a wildlife pond! You’ll never need to watch the TV again. It’s non stop drama. If you have a problem number of slugs and snails, you just need a pond (even a bucket pond) and nice habitat to attract some toads, frogs and newts which will patrol the space and gobble up all the ‘pests’. And of course NO SLUG PELLETS @froglifers #bufobufo #toad #habitat #biodiversity #amphibians #commontoad #wildlifegarden #natureinthecity #wildlife #urbangreen #ecologicalcollapse #dontuseslugpellets #naturalbalance #predator #pesticidefree #communitygarden #hoxton #hackney

Common european toad (Bufo bufo) sheltering under toadstool from rain. Adult toads emerge from their overwintering sites in late spring and start migrating towards the pond on mild, damp evenings so keep a look out!⁣

Toads tend to return to ancestral breeding ponds along the same routes each year. Breeding is usually a little later than Common Frogs; females lay strings of spawn (eggs) wrapped around vegetation. Depending on local weather conditions, two to four weeks later tadpoles will hatch out. The tadpoles are black and may form shoals. After around 16 weeks the tadpoles start to grow back legs, followed by front legs. (Photo by Paul Hobson)⁣

Look who I found on the porch today! The tiniest, cutest common toad ever 😍😍😍
.
I had to pick him up to move him away from the dog and the footpath, and he was so brave! I popped him down on the edge of the forest opposite our house, and off he hopped into the darkness 🐸 I am in love, he was totally adorable!!! 💕

A little toad friend I almost stepped on when crossing the road 🐸 (Amphibians shouldn’t be handled if it can be avoided but I didn’t want them getting squished) #toad #commontoad #nature

“Mating toads”

During mating, the male clutches the female from behind in a tight embrace. He fertilises the long, triple-stranded strings of eggs as she lays them among the waterweeds. Tadpoles hatch after about 10 days and gradually change completely, or metamorphose, into toadlets over two to three months. Common toads can live up to around 10-12 years.
