Spadefoot Toads
By Vickie Chao
  

1     Amphibians -- frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts -- cannot live without water for a very practical reason. If they don't keep their moist skin damp at all times, they die! Thus, for most amphibians, rivers, lakes, and ponds are the natural housing choices.
 
2     Spadefoot toads, however, are not most amphibians. They dwell in arid or semi-arid places. They even thrive in deserts!
 
3     Why do spadefoot toads survive in habitats that their other relatives shun? The answer lies in their feet and skin.
