Asia's common toad camouflaged to its perfection... Reminds me of my childhood where I thought tadpoles were tiny fishes, and had put them the water tank. #toad #commontoad #camouflage #tadpoles

Look who we discovered today - a common toad (Bufo bufo?) - nestling in the rose beds at Fishponds Park, Surbiton, during a Community Conservation Day organised and supported by the Friends of Fishponds Park and @citizenzoo . . . . . #FishpondsPark #surbiton #communitypark #conservationarea #wildlifeconservation #commontoad #toad #toadsofinstagram #londonnationalparkcity

B. Bufo - the common toad, found in parts of Europe. This toad in particular I spotted in Scotland, which is incredibly blended in to its surroundings. 👀 - - - #toad #science #commontoad #bufo #ecology #conservation #scotland #environment #follow #like #adaptation #biology #biologystudent #camoflauge

Amphibians nearly give me a heart attack when they suddenly appear lol. This magnificent frog did so this morning.It was most indignant at being carried through the house to the back garden 🐸 The little tiddly toad disguised as a clod of earth, also got the old ticker going when it moved , a couple of months back 😍 #frog #frogsofinstagram #frogs #amphibian #amphibians #amphibiansofinstagram #gardenfrog #gardentoad #toad #toads #toadsofinstagram #inmygarden #gardeningforwildlife #gardenwildlifeuk #gardenwildlife #pondlife #ukwildlife #britishwildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #ignature #ignaturecapture #ignature_capture #nature_capture #commonfrog #commontoad #picoftheday #photooftheday #wildlife

I believe this photographic evidence proves my theory that toads are indeed a liquid. • • • • • #toad #americantoad #commontoad #baby #amphibiansofinstagram #amphibian #adorable #cute #squish #liquid #animal #amphibianlove #dirtqueen #dirt

Funnily enough, this is the first toad we’ve ever seen in the Norfolk Broads! Not just us enjoying the sunshine ☀️ #toad #commontoad #wildlife #river #boattrip #broadsnationalpark #igersnorfolkbroads #norfolk #swimming #legs #olympusuk #olympusem5ii

European Toad (Bufo bufo) 🐸 Toads will eat many different species of invertebrate prey throughout their lifetime. They are known to have voracious appetites, and after a long year of chowing down, individuals like this one will be getting ready to hunker down in a suitable spot, for a well-earned winter rest. 🐸 #commontoad #bufobufo #europeantoad #amphibian #wildlifephotography #bufonidae #anura #nature #biodiversity #toadsofinstagram #amphibiansofinstagram #toad #britishwidlife #instatoad #naturalworld #amphibians #animals #wildbritain #instanature #amphibiansofig #pondlife #autumnwatch @bbcwildlifemagazine @bbcearth

Happy Halloween! The common toad was traditionally associated with witches and thought of as a bad omen but these warty amphibians are actually completely harmless to humans.

It is odd that we have so little relationship with nature, with the insects and the leaping frog and the owl that hoots among the hills calling for its mate. We never seem to have a feeling for all living things on the earth. #bufo #bufobufo #commontoad #smeđakrastača #frog #herpetology #herpetofauna #biology #zoology #amphibians #amphibian #nature #naturephotography #photography #animalphotography #animallover #animal #forest #woods #enjoynature #enjoylife #slavonija #slavonijaonmymind #country #country_features #countryside #enjoynature #

True story~ without the #commontoad , witches will not be able to create magical spells, concoct poisonous brews, depend on a faithful familiar that doubles as a spy, or make that flying ointment to go about their witchery & do the Dark Lord’s bidding! #witchcraft #samhain

What would you answer if was asking you "what do tadpoles eat"? You would probably say, according to their tiny mouth and their clumsy movements, algae, plants, bacteria... This is what I would have answered too before seeing this scene this summer! And it's right: this is what they eat during most of their life as tadpoles. But a few weeks before their metamorphosis in hungry predators (toads), they also start adding meat in their menu! It can be dead meat (for example this trout, or whatever animal die next to them)...or living meat (ants, worms etc). If the conditions are harsh, they can even eat other tadpoles to find enough energy for their metamorphosis! How can they do that, will you ask? Well, even if they have a small mouth (~0,5mm), common tadpoles possess hundreds of sharp teeth positioned in two upper rows and three lower rows! Besides, they also possess a strong keratinized beak-like structure (surrounded by the teeth) which can open very wide (check my story for SEM pictures). The role of the teeth is to mantain and hurt the prey while the beak cut the skin and detach pieces of flesh! Do you still see tadpoles as cute and harmless creatures now?

Look at this guy, getting his photo taken up close like a pro! 🐸📸 Cool as a cucumber, and more than a tad better at posing. Here, we are dealing with a common toad (Bufo bufo), enjoying the last streaks of sunlight during a beautiful summer's eve on Christiansø by Bornholm. Great memory from a trip teeming with wildlife encounters. Will definitely post more of those when time permits. *** #commontoad #bufobufo #toad #toads #🐸 #amphibian #animal #animals #animalphotos #animalphotography #closeup #wildlife #wildlifephotography #magicalencounters #summertime #nature #memories #danishfauna #skrubtudse #christiansø #ertholmene #bornholm #balticsea #amateurphotographer #amateurphotography #panasoniclumix #bridgecamera #📸 #artwolfphotos

So today's #inktober2019 (Day 26!) is a shout out to all those animals currently going into hibernation. We can help them by leaving piles of leaves and piles of wood (I have some pallets which our resident toad lives under). Also if you are planning to have a bonfire to celebrate Guy Fawkes make sure you check for hiding hibernators BEFORE you light it! Today's ink sketch is a common toad! They live for anything up to 12 years! Sometimes misunderstood they are the gardeners friend gobbling up slugs and snails! They usually wake up from their winter snooze and make for their breeding grounds (a nearby pond - next door in my case) around February, but sometimes need to cross roads to get there. One to watch out for...but not quite yet! Ref: no idea - from a 30 year old magazine with no credit unfortunately....says a lot about my hoarding tendencies! :/ #commontoad #toad #hibernation #hibernatingseason #wildlife #nature #naturelover #inktober2019

Giovane Rospo comune (Bufo bufo)

Close up to a Common toad (Bufo bufo) 🐸

“Mating toads” During mating, the male clutches the female from behind in a tight embrace. He fertilises the long, triple-stranded strings of eggs as she lays them among the waterweeds. Tadpoles hatch after about 10 days and gradually change completely, or metamorphose, into toadlets over two to three months. Common toads can live up to around 10-12 years. . . #uw.pics.reposted #underwatercamera #underwaterpic #uwphotos #uwmacro #narcosis.images #duiken #duikeninbeeld #underwateremotions #underwater_world_ #kings_underwater #duikspot #marinelife #bg_underwater #instadive #diving_photography #scubadiving_grams_us #underwaterphotographer #divingphotography #underwaterimages #scubaaddict #underwatershot #scubadivingmag #divingphoto #wildlifeaddicts #hugyfot_be #leonardo_oftheoceans #padden #toads #commontoad

Common european toad (Bufo bufo) sheltering under toadstool from rain. Adult toads emerge from their overwintering sites in late spring and start migrating towards the pond on mild, damp evenings so keep a look out!⁣ ⁣ Toads tend to return to ancestral breeding ponds along the same routes each year. Breeding is usually a little later than Common Frogs; females lay strings of spawn (eggs) wrapped around vegetation. Depending on local weather conditions, two to four weeks later tadpoles will hatch out. The tadpoles are black and may form shoals. After around 16 weeks the tadpoles start to grow back legs, followed by front legs. (Photo by Paul Hobson)⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #WoodlandTrust #Toad #CommonToad #BufoBufo #WildlifePhotography
