  • notes   During rainy night extraordinary amount of dead and live toads spotted on roads intersecting orchards. Unfortunately, many gravid females were crushed, forcing eggs onto pavement. A conscious effort was made to detect breeding choruses, but none heard. Toads view stalking garden snails, which carpeted roads. In cultivated areas this toad overwhelmed its counterpart, Bufo cognatus. The latter was more often encountered in undeveloped plots of land surrounding orchard.
