Book Giveaway An Ordinary Toad’s Extraordinary Night

AOTEN Book CoverHow An Ordinary Toad’s Extraordinary Night Came To Be

My focus during my zoology studies was  on big cat conservation and they are considered charismatic megafauna.   The term charismatic megafauna refers to large well-known animal species that attract a disproportionate share of the public’s attention.  The tiger is the world’s most popular animal according to a survey conducted by animal planet. The big cat even beat out the dog for the number one position. These species have the “it” factor that grabs the public’s attention and desire to save them. The koala certainly is charming, but a small toad…perhaps not.

Toads and Frogs Need Protected Too!

What about all the living beings that aren’t cute and cuddly or fierce and admired.  Driving one day, I thought about toads.  Then I wondered why frogs seem to be the preferred amphibian.  I imagined a young toad named Andrew. I wish I could tell you why his name is Andrew but I honestly don’t know. But I began to tell Gracey, she was a great listener, the story of a Andrew the young toad that wondered if his life might have been better had be been hatched a frog.  And that is how An Ordinary Toad’s Extraordinary Night
came to be.

Frogs and Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger

Which Frog Found the Pot of Gold?

It has been a long, cold and snowy winter here in Ohio. Last night though if we listened super close we could hear the sweet sound of the Spring peepers. If you live in the central and eastern parts of Canada and the United States, you know that this frog chorus means spring is just around the corner. These tiny little amphibians are rarely seen. They hang out in wooded areas and grassy lowlands near swamps or ponds. They have excellent camouflage as  they are tan or brown in color with dark lines that form an X on their backs. They are nocturnal, hiding from their predators during the day but come out at night to dine on beetles, ants, flies and spiders.In the middle of March, the nighttime chorus swells from the male Spring Peepers looking for a mate and for the rest of us it means that winter is over.

Which Frog is the $50 Frog?

So now that Spring is ready to pounce on us, Lazy Leopard and I thought we would have some fun with our  Can You Find the $50 Frog contest.  One of these super cute little frogs is hiding a bit of green for one lucky member of The Tiniest Tiger community.
