    My daughter found these toads on the outside of our cellar window several years ago, or rather: maybe it was this big toad that has been living there for years, but certainly not the baby. There's quite many toad babies now:

    She is quite fond of them, as fond as she is of almost ANY animal:

    But she was not willing to kiss this frog that we found in my cousin's garden pond, just to see whether it'd say "poooof" and suddenly it would be a handsome prince. She claimed that
    a) it wasn't wearing a little crown, anyway, and
    b) that she wouldn't know what to do with a prince right now, anyway:

    That is something you would want to discuss with my daughter... ;)
    She finds them cuddly enough and holds them all the time. Often though, these creatures then take most daring jumps out of her hand and fall a distance as if a person were jumping off a skyscraper - and survive easiy. Amazing, really. But I rather she leaves them in peace!!!

    I also used to play with bugs, frogs, and lizards when I was little. Now it doesn't seem like such a good idea :). She's just exploring the world around her. Nothing wrong with that! BTW, how old is your girl?

    12 already.
    Much beyond the "exploring" age... but at 2 she still sometimes accidentally murdered the creatures she played with :shock:

    Hehe, yeah, that happens when kids play. As long as they don't do it on purpose, there's nothing to worry about. Maybe she will become a vet, who knows? Does your son like animals as much as she does?

    I've never seen a toad like that big guy. He looks more like a brick or a rock than a toad!!
