watch Eastern Narrowmouth Toads are locally abundant, meaning they don't occur everywhere, but where they do occur it is usually with large numbers. They are the only Atlanta representative of the Microhylidae, a family with global distribution. A diminutive frog, the species can be very hard to detect visually. They have a very loud and comical call that sounds like a bleating sheep, or a long whiny drone. They breed in fishless pools and wetlands such a borrow pits, roadside ditches and tire ruts. Eggs are laid in approx. 150 egg batches, like a film on the surface but a female can lay up to 700 eggs in a breeding event.
