Habitat Resources: Creating a Toad Adobe

A simple water and cover feature for amphibians.

  1. Get a medium-size clay pot and saucer from a garden center.
  2. Put the saucer on the ground and keep it filled with water.
  3. Nearby, put the pot upside-down with an edge resting on a rock. That makes room for a toad to fit through and hide inside. (If you have a broken pot with a chunk missing at the rim, you have an abode with an instant doorway--no need to prop it up.)
  4. Watch for night visitors.
