    Eggs laid in strands suggest another toad spawn, but I suspect a different species than you currently have young from. Most amphibians only spawn once per year and several toad species are mid summer breeders.

    But these eggs are black and white inside, and I know Bull frog eggs are like that.

    Mark, I don't know where Cananda is

    I am late on this thread. I have no idea how long it takes them to morph(do you still have it?). If the arms and legs stay roughly that shape, it looks like a toad. Cricket frogs have fame for being able to jump something like 36 times their body length.
    Kind of hard to say toad, when you see it all slimy and all, lol.

    I know for a fact it's a toad, just still don't know what kind. I let it go because it was losing weight, but I have them all over my yard still and they are getting nice and big. I'll take a pic of one soon.

    Ok, I found out what I have! I sent those pics to the toad/frog lady I've been talking to and she told me I have a Southern Toad.

    Southern Toad
    (Bufo terrestris)

    Size:
    Adult Southern Toads generally range in size from 1.5 to 3 inches, although the record size is nearly 4.5 inches. Any toad found in Florida larger than 4 inches is almost certainly an invasive Cane Toad.

    Description:
    Southern Toads are warty frogs with oval glands on the shoulders and a pair of obvious ridges or "crests" on top of the head. They can range in color from tan to reddish-brown, dark brown, or gray with darker spots on the back.

    Range:
    Southern Toads are one of the most common toads in the southeastern US, and are found along the coastal plain (including all of Florida) from southern Virginia to the Mississippi River (Louisiana).

    Breeding Season:
    March to October

    Sounds like your mystery is solved. Now make sure to wash your hands after handling those toads. Don't want to get any toxin in your eyes or mouth......."eat a toad in the morning and nothing worse will happen for the rest of your day."
