The common toad is a brown/olive-brown coloured amphibian which can be found throughout mainland Britain and Europe. They like to spend most of their time in woodland, scrub or coarse grasslands, returning to ponds in spring. A recent study has shown that this species is not fairing very well throughout the UK and populations have been declining for the past 30 years. This quiz hopes to raise awareness of the common toad and teach you some facts about this brilliant species. If you want to read more about the decline of the common toad and find out about Froglife’s Year of the Toad campaign, head over to their website.
