Look closely at this slime and you’ll see the developing bodies of dozens of American toad tadpoles [Anaxyrus americanus]. American toads typically lay eggs in March and April, with their offspring hatching in as little as 3 days, depending on the water’s temperature. Tadpoles feed entirely on plants and detritus for the first few weeks of life, only switching to insects after growing legs and losing their tails. Image by Bonnie Kinder.
