Detour lets toads cross road without croaking
It's rush hour in Philadelphia for thousands of baby toads as they hop across a busy residential street on a rainy summer night. Why do toadlets cross the road? To get to the woods on the other side — where they will live, eat mosquitoes and grow up to be full-sized Americ...
