well i have all of those wonderful critters. But I have noticed that the eastern narrow mouthed toads really love my compost bins and now I dont want to bother them...so I have a dilemma. Do I bother these poor little guys that live their entire lives in my compost bin. They have all they need right there. Oh Gosh What do I do?????? Darn toads...they are so small too. the largest I have seen is barely one inch...

aww, I would leave the toads alone too. The way I figure it, you are fostering them all, and the whole population including the toads, is better off this way!
