Gaze into the molten gold eyes of Rhinella ruizi, a species of true toad endemic to the tallest branch of the Colombian Andes. This high-altitude species rarely exceeds 2 inches in length, and is believed to hatch via direct development, with offspring skipping the tadpole stage to instead emerge as tiny versions of adults.

Did you know that the French word for toad is ‘le crapaud’? Seems a bit rude. I only mention this so that if you’re ever in Marsellie, France, like this spiny toad [Bufo spinosus], you can ask the locals “Où sont les crapauds?“, which means “Where are the toads?” Maybe you’ll get to meet this lovely lady yourself.

Here we see two Atukorale’s dwarf toads [also known as Yala toads, Duttaphrynus atukoralei], spotted by photographer Milivoje Krvavac in the Hiyare Forest Reserve in Sri Lanka. These toads are commonly found in evergreen tropical forests, and are named after Mr. Vicky Atukorale, a Sri Lankan naturalist who studied them.
