Toad Prince

At Squaw Valley Park this morning, we found a number of toads, including this lovely one, who decided Emily was just his type. You will notice the way his arms are wrapped around Emily's hand. For those wishing to give their children a different version of the birds and the bees, this position is called amplexus, and precedes the male fertilization of the female toad eggs.
As you can see, I think it is as fun for Emily as it is for him.
