African toads undergo a life cycle similar to metamorphosis in butterflies. They hatch from their eggs into tadpoles with gills before growing limbs and have their gills replaced with lungs.
Toads are often found near rivers and in moist grasslands. They make croaking sounds to communicate with others of their kind. Toads feed primarily and insects and other small invertebrates.
Some toads wait for Ma Tembo to find the new water source.
