Ohio is fortunate in having many species of amphibians. Although generally inconspicuous most of the year, during the breeding season, especially following a warm, early spring rain, amphibians appear in great numbers seemingly out of nowhere. Those which migrate in mass to the breeding grounds are often killed in large numbers trying to cross roads. Fortunately, however, nature for the most part has endowed these little animals with the ability to reproduce in great numbers.
