The toad is known for their famous croaking vocals, their thick, warty skin and nocturnal activity. Young toads prefer smaller insects such as aphids and as adults they consume a variety of invertebrates like earthworms, snails and crickets.
Their wild life span is up to 4 years!
They prefer to crawl rather than hop and hibernate over winter under log piles!
The Common Toads are found to your left as you enter the Main Building - we a breeding programme with a small group of adults producing spawn each spring. The young are then wild released into our wildlife pools on site.
