COMMON TOAD

Details

Common toads are largely nocturnal. They are found in ponds only in the breeding season; during the rest of the year they can be found far from water bodies. They have a broad diet, feeding on a huge range of prey small enough to swallow, including insects, spiders, earwigs, earthworms, snails and slugs; they have even been observed eating young toads. They feed only on land and use a 'sit-and-wait' style of hunting. Toads are usually welcomed by gardeners, thanks to their voracious appetites and penchant for garden pests.
