I was out gardening a few weeks ago, and the boys were scavenging around when all of a sudden "Look what I found, Mom!" An itty bitty toad. Proportionally less repellant than the big fat squashy toad I keep almost stepping on if I go out at night. It hangs out near our front porch light, waiting for insects I guess, but I never remember till the "rock" I pass on the shadowy path suddenly darts out of the way! Always very startling. A toad this size though, is kind of cute. But no, I'm sorry boys, we can't keep him as a pet!
