they find the “piggybacking” toads every year #toad #amplexus #caterwaul #boymom #momof4boys #nature #matingsprinkle

Usually I see this, before (swipe right) I see this. From
#amplexus to #eggmass, sight unseen? Stealth woodfrogs this year, I guess...but then thankfully #charleyeiseman chimed in on FB and demystified: they are spotted salamander eggs! I knew I didn't even hear the frogs "quacking" like usual. #frog #mygarden #watergarden #screwballspring18

There were plenty of Striped Rocketfrogs (Litoria nasuta) out and about last night following more rain on the #sunshinecoast. Good conditions for a frog pre-clearance survey for once! Just not so great about the clearing.

This amplecting pair were photographed during my first trip to north QLD. Good times!

Rana temporaria in amplexus in my tortoisegarden this morning. Male with a nice blue breeding belly 💙 #ranatemporaria #frog #amphibian #froginmygarden #amplexus #breeding #newgeneration #spring #springtime #tortoisegarden #mygarden #butsnudetfrø #frøer #minhave #forår #💙

Такой беспредел продолжается уже больше месяца, а кладок нет 😞
Вроде на зимовке хорошо отъелись, влажность высокая, самцы орут как резанные, а толку никакого 😪
Уже задумываемся о повторной зимовке...🤔

Pipa parva (Sabana Surinam toad)
April is National Frog Month! 🐸
The Sabana Surinam toad is found in waterways in northeastern Colombia and northwestern Venezuela. Males may reach lengths of 37 millimeters while females can stretch to 44 millimeters. The head is narrow and the eyes are large. The skin has tubercles and the webbing of the feet is transparent. This species is quite abundant, and is expanding its range to the point of being considered an invasive pest. These Sabana Surinam toads are engaged in amplexus, the process by which most aquatic anurans fertilize the eggs externally. While the male is grasping the female, they somersault underwater; each time, she lays 3-10 eggs, which become embedded in the soft skin of her back. For what happens next with these unusual frogs, come back tomorrow! 🐸

A pair of Atelopus sp. Limon(limon stubfoot toads) in amplexus at Centro Jambatu/Wikiri breeding center. Wikiri has had spectacular success breeding and raising many species of Atelopus. No doubt techniques learned for success with more common species helped them with rare ones, and today some remain that the code hasn't been figured out yet. With more people getting a chance to work with these toads, chances are more innovative husbandry techniques are on the way, that may help us save additional Atelopus on the brink. What other instances can you think of where hobbyists can contribute information that helps conservation?

While not as persistent as an elephant seal(several months without food during breeding season), nor as annoying as an anglerfish(permanent appendage), the male stubfoot toad nevertheless will cling to the female for days on end. #cuddlepuddle #amplexus .

A foam nest is a method of egg laying in some amphibians, especially tree frogs. During amplexus, the female will rub her hind legs together while producing a fluid, which turns into a small foam nest. She then lays her eggs inside to be fertilized by the male which latches on her back during amplexus, such as shown in this image.

I witnessed this pair of striped tree frogs, Polypedates leucomystax by a pool in West Java. This species is very adaptable, often found in or near human habitations.
