Sometimes I come across odd little facts about things in the garden and in Nature in general. This thread is started by a chap that is bored and has too much time on his hands...that is obvious. Well, be that all as it may....bored is as bored does-- so lets get to it...and why start small. 1,000,000-- During the toad migration in my country 1,000,000 toads are run over by road traffic. This period begins around the end of march and what happens is this--the toads get the urge...the urge to mate. They then leave the area where they spent the winter and migrate to various bodies of water where they mate. This means that they sometimes must cross roads or streets. There are large numbers of volunteers that work with nets and place them in buckets and then take them to the various "Ponds of Romance" and release them. It is a intensive nocturnal job and must continue until the migration has ended. Right then. If you have any nature/garden related numbers please feel free to post therm here. I am always interested in Natural Numbers and plan to post new numbers from time to time.
