Western toad

Anaxyrus Boreas


Organic garden.


Appeared my in garden about a week after I placed the coconut shell for toads to live in. They eat snails, slugs, roaches, and other pests making them very desirable to gardeners and are easy to attract with nothing more than an upside down flower pot with a chip to get in, but are extremely sensitive to pesticides and are becoming near threatened so please, grow organically.
