American Toad - Lincoln Park Zoo - Poem by Ima Ryma

An American toad I be,
Toading fine at Lincoln Park Zoo.
I am in the frog family,
But do be dif'rent - yes I do!
I don't need water to live in.
I don't need to do lots of leap.
So I have warty and dry skin,
Wider bod with short legs I keep.
Poison glands behind oval eyes
Make would be predators think twice.
Not clusters but long chains arise,
When I am laying eggs precise.

So when you spot me, 'Here's a toad, '
A fact that now you know you knowed!
