Generally what people consider to be toads are the species that are stubbier, have dry-warty skin, walk instead of jump, and prefer dryer climates. Here in Davis if you encounter a toad it is likely to be a California Toad (also called Western Toad) and if you encounter a frog it's probably a Pacific Tree Frog. They both operate at night so you're lucky if you see one at all. Frogs and Toads lay their eggs in water so you're more likely to encounter them there.</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 7: </td> <td> Line 7: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Large numbers of Pacific tree frogs (''Pseudacris regilla'') can be heard (in mid February) "ribbiiting" near ["West Pond"].
