Woodhouse's Toad (Juvenile)

Photo of a Woodhouse's toad (juvenile).

Woodhouse's toads begin breeding in late April or early May, peaking in mid-May. As with other species of toads, the female lays several thousand eggs in flooded fields, ditches, ponds, pools, and streams. These hatch in about a week. The black tadpoles begin to change into toadlets by late June or mid-July.
