Image: A close-up photo of a brown toad with shiny, dark eyes sitting in a grassy vernal pool with its throat extended in an almost white, translucent bubble. The toad is calling potential mates nearby, and there are about a dozen other toads (not visible) in the water. The water directly around this toad is rippled from its movement. Another toad is close by the caller with a mate.
