Imagine our surprise finally finding the fat little amphibians hopping through our yard. With the number of crickets we have, the warmer weather and the ample moisture, I'd have thought toads were an Indiana give-in too. They've turned out to be a rarity (the tree frogs are another matter entirely--in Iowa, those were the rarity).
We'll enjoy the ones we find. They don't care much for being shadowed but after a few minutes of playing together, we let them hippity hop along their way.
