Toads

While I was coming back home, from dinner one night I spotted something rustling in the bushes. I brushed it off due to the fact that I was exhausted and just wanted to jump into my nice, cool bed. But curiosity took the better of me as I halted to a stop. As I stopped walking, the bushes shook, and a mellow sound radiated from it. The sound echoed through the night as if it expanded into the air. I began to approach the sound, while also keeping my distance. Making sure I was not walking up on something that could hurt me. As I got closer and closer the noise ceased and I felt a sense of fear spike over me. I bent down to see what I had just encountered. There it was, a big Toad basking in the moonlight. I breathed a sigh of relief as it was not a snake or something potentially dangerous. As I admired the Toad for a couple more seconds seeing its rough skin, and dark eyes, my exhaustion found its way back to me, and I decided to head back and say bye to my new friend. As I trodded back to my room, a new feeling came over me and the feeling of tiredness flew out the window.
As I entered the room I cracked open my laptop. I began researching and found out a lot of new things about the common Toad. I found that the Toad gets confused with the common frog and they have a lot in common but a lot of differences. I found that the toad has dry, rough skin. They eat crickets, worms, insects and spiders. They live in marshes and ponds. Mainly places with some grass and a lot of water. Their legs are very small and thick, made for jumping. Their main predators are snakes, birds, and hawks. As I got tired from scrolling through pages of information about Toads, and my body pleaded with me for some sleep, I decided to call it a night and jumped in my bed. I laid down, my head resting on the pillow, as my eyes drifted off. I began to think about my new little friend, and a weary smile came across my face. As memories of happiness and curiosity, found its way into my dreams.
