The surinam toad is native to the Amazon region in South America, Peru, Guyana, Surinam, Brazil. They spend much of their life in water, preferring muddy or cloudy water. They live on the water bottom, mostly only surfacing for air. The surinam toad is a brown color and very flat, resembling a leaf. This toad is best known for their reproductive process. The female surinam toad carries the eggs on her back, embedded into pockets in her skin. The tadpoles develop within these pockets. Once they are fully developed, the babies emerge from the mother's back as small, fully developed toads. Play the following videos to learn more about the surinam toad.
