Spring Mating Season for Toads

Springtime is mating time for many different species of animals.  On Father's day this past Sunday a number of tiny toads and frogs were seen at Coventry Lake.  The toad in this picture was taken by Laurie Kolka in the hands of Rich Kolka.  The toad instantaneously urinated as that is one of its defense mechanisms.  Toads differ from frogs by being able to live further from water and they have drier skin.
