In case you are triskaidekaphobic, here is some good news for this Friday the 13th. Although I had not seen many toads on the island recently (I believe most of them were drowned in hurricane high tides in the last several years), I have noticed several along the Hammock Hills Nature Trail earlier this month.
It is good to see these amphibians looking robust. I believe they are a sign of a healthy environment.
