While working in the yard this weekend, I noticed there was a toad down in one of my window wells. Upon closer examinations, there was not one toad, but SIX toads! A quick check of a few other window wells turned up one more.
What’s the deal? I could see one stray toad hopping in and not being able to get out, but seven?!? These guys were all the same species - light tan, with darker brown spots & stripes. Did they indeed get stuck in my window wells, and if I didn’t rescue them (well, at least some of them) would they die? Or are they somehow living & breeding down there?
BTW, I live in Colorado, and don’t remember ever seeing toads around my house before. I would’ve thought the lack of water and extreme heat lately would cook 'em. I guess not.
