Ireland is home to just one toad – the Natterjack Toad. The Natterjack lives in small pockets of south Ireland, and breeds in the Castlegregory sand dunes. Males and Females gather together in shallow ponds to lay their eggs. Careful observation - listening and watching - reveals that male Natterjack Toads make a loud and deep sound to attract females. This unique sound has become an important part of Irish tradition.
