|The western toad (Anaxyrus boreas) can be found anywhere in the western
United States, as long as there is nearby water for egg-laying. In late
spring a thousand or so black eggs are laid in long transparent
strings. The eggs hatch into tadpoles, which then transform into tiny
toads, which eat anything they can catch and swallow as they grow up to 5
inches long. They secrete toxins from the paratoid glands behind their
eyes and should not be kissed. This particular toad posed for me near
This is an 8.5" x 5.5" greeting card.
It's lovingly printed in black and white by minimum wage copy-shop
employees onto FSC certified 20% recycled Ultra Bright White cardstock
from a high quality scan of my original art, then hand-folded by me.
The card is blank inside, making it usable for any occasion, especially amphibian-related events.
Includes an appropriately sized white envelope.
