Surinam Toad

About Surinam Toad

This toad finds food mostly by touch with its long fingers. When the female lays her eggs, the male will use his body to press them into the spongy skin on her back. Her skin then grows over the eggs, which will protect them from predators. Then, about 3 to 4 months later, the eggs hatch and instead of tadpoles, up to 100 tiny but mature toads will emerge.
