         The Common Frog Rana temporaria produces spawn in large gelatinous masses whereas the Common Toad Bufo bufo and Natterjack Toad Epidalea calamita produce theirs in long strings. However tempting it might be readers are urged not to transfer spawn from natural habitats as this will increase the risk of spreading potentially lethal pathogens. In order to survive each pair of amphibians attaining maturity would need just two of their multitudinous offspring to survive for long enough to breed themselves so most tadpoles are destined to be eaten by predators!
