Geocache Description:

As I was looking for a place to hide this cache I came across several mounds of dirt. As I went to step over it, part of it started moving. Upon closer look I found the American Toad (Bufo americanus) slowing burrying itself in the middle.

American Toads Behavior:

American toads are primarily
nocturnal and are usually most active at warm
humid times of the year. As night falls they
emerge from their hiding spots to hunt for food.
This is the time that they are most vulnerable to
predators as well as automobiles. Toads are
often able to find an abundance of insects in the
open areas around roads and often put
themselves in direct danger of being hit by cars
while hunting for a meal.
American toads have a couple ways of
defending themselves when they feel they are in
danger. The first line of defense is their skin
toxins, which make most animals (including
domestic dogs that mess with them) quite sick.
Also, if picked up by a predator or handled by a
human they will excrete a great deal of urine,
which supposedly tastes bad to most predators.
Sometimes they will also puff up their bodies
with air to appear larger.

This cache is located in a City of Woodbury park. Park hours are 0600 hrs - 2200 hrs.
