View Full Version : Garden Herps

Out in the garden today, moving some rubble and came across this splendid toad (Bufo bufo), which I moved to a dry stone wall. Then Cocoa, our Burmese cat, brought in this beautiful female common lizard (Lacerta vivipara). She seems unharmed and hadn't even lost her tail. I rescued her and released her - she seems ok. By the look of her she's pregnant.

Most of the toads up here (300m up in N Wales, edge of Snowdonia) seem to be on the dark side. I think they like the dry stone walls.
