After the two good rains last week, only the puddles not yet dried up hold what will become spadefoot toads...Some of those that have already dried up have a lot of dead tadpoles in them.
These were using a rock for shelter. Hundreds of them!
These adults come out with a good monsoon storm. We helped about 33 of them from being caught in the roadway at a park. There were many already dead from cars driving in or out. Anyhow, they come out to mate and lay eggs in puddles that will hopefully manage to bring the little ones from tadpole to toad in less than a couple weeks.
