Ever kissed a toad?

The kids found this toad at the farm and had fun playing with it. When I first came to Libya 17 years ago you could find toads everywhere in rural areas, especially in areas that were being irrigated. I haven't seen very many toads lately. I think it is probably the result of all the insecticides that are being sprayed everywhere. Posted by Picasa


  1. Interesting post. I was listening to the news today and they had a report on how global warming may be helping a fungus that kills amphibians. Some 131 spieces of frog have become extinct in the last 20 years because of it.

  2. Just looking at the news and saw that too! Maybe there is a connection. It's sad because I really love watching frogs and toads. They are so cute!

  3. Hope you had a blessed Eid!
    What is the environment situation in Libya? Are people at all environmentally conscious?
