Common Toads (Bufo bufo) and Their Springtime Activities ;-)

These pictures were taken a few weeks ago in the Botanical garden of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Charles University. Every year, the garden ponds are full of common toads (Bufo bufo), which come there to mate and lay small black eggs encapsulated in typical long mucous strands. Watching them is quite amazing, especially as they can be loud and are always very photogenic.
