Some Toads

I have noticed a decrease in the toad population in the last year. I was wondering if there was anything wrong with driving down the road at night, picking them up and bringing them to my house.
Thanks, Chris

I would check your local laws about collecting herps. Also i would find out exactly what type of toads they are so IF it is legal to collect them, that you can provide the necessary care for them, and not lead them to an early demise. Cloud also be the reason for the smaller number of toads in the area.

PS dont use a flashlight or spot light at night to find them, the DNR doesn't like that too TRUST ME!!!

I've noticed a steady decline in the amphibian population in my area for the last 5 years or so. Its not surprising here, with our average annual rain fall having been less than it should. Some of my best hunting spots a few years ago are devoid of visible life now... but these things go in cycles, and as long as their habitat isn't being destroyed, the population will pick back up when the environment is better suited for them.

There is a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.
