Toad Homes

This article talks about toad homes.  I have two things to add:

1) If you use clay pots, DO NOT paint them.  Use unglazed, unpained pots so that when they get wet, they provide a cooler and wetter environment inside.  Sealing the clay undermines this process.

2) You can make a much better amphibian home with a mulch pile.  It will host a whole detritus food chain.  Toads and other beneficial creatures can hide in there during hot, dry, or cold weather.
