Our favourite new facts – Betic midwife toad
- Midwife toads are so named because of the extraordinary level of parental care the male provides to the eggs.
- As in other midwife toads, the male Betic midwife toad fertilises then wraps the eggs around its hind legs. The eggs remain bound to the hind legs for around a month.
- The male provides all of the care for the eggs, protecting them from predation and preventing them from drying out.
