We will discuss here about the habit of toad. Toad is a common amphibious cold blooded animal found in our places. The larvae (initial and immature stage) of this animal develop in water but when they grow adult, they come out of water and stay normally on land. As the toads need two types of habitats, water as well as land to are considered to be a member of class amphibian.
Amphibious animals cannot stand extreme climates i.e., very hot and very cold conditions. During winter they go underground to avoid cold; this is called winter sleep or hibernation. In very hot and dry climate also they go underground; this is called summer sleep or aestivation. So we rarely find toads or frogs during winter and hot summer days.
