I have a little toad who stays around my back door under the carport. The light from the glass door and the kitchen window draws lots of bugs there at night. I have to be careful not to step on him (or her?) when I go outside after dark.
While cleaning the carport on Labor Day, I apparently took away his “abode” and I kept having to dodge him so as not to squish him. He looked lost. When finished cleaning, I grabbed a small potted plant and put it on the concrete beside my potting bench, hoping the toad would take to it as his new home. I was pleasantly surprised to see him burrowed in the pot the next morning. How sweet is that?
