49. The Natterjack Toad

The natterjack is a small greyish toad, of very local distribution in Great Britain, though occurring in widespread places from Scotland to the South of England. It also occurs in Ireland. Where it is found it may be quite numerous. It has a creamy line down its spine which is a useful means of identification, and it is not so warty in appearance as the common toad, moreover it is more brisk in its movements and gives the impression of being longer in its limbs.
