Reptiles & Amphibians

Unfortunately. these creatures have not fared well with the influx of settlement in our municipality. In some isolated segments of our boro one can expect a continuous melody from mid-April to late May.

In these rare freshwater ponds, the spring peeper and fowler toad will be playing their mating games. Most of their activity begins at dusk. Their extremely small tadpole offspring quickly grow into adulthood and move inland. As insect eaters, these pest controllers do us all a service throughout the warm months of the year.
