Anaxyrus boreas

Purchase at Etsy

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 Livermore, California.

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.
