    Default Hi there! Lucy and barn owner looking for advice from Missouri

    Hi There. Wow a whole frog forum - very nice.
    We live in Missouri on a "farmette". I am looking for help with Lucy - a big orange toad.
    Lucy has taken up residence in my barn - been there all summer. I tried to take her away - but she came back. So I made her a little "frog city" in the barn.

    Well - Poor Lucy was trying to dig a hole in the gravel on the barn bottom trying to hypernate, but she didn't make it down 1/8 of an inch. I read about toad abodes - and made her two of them, but she doesn't seem to care for them. There's nice loafy dirt - nice wet leaves, dug down for her.

    Today when I went in the barn - she was sitting by the door - now she Does have an escape she knows where it is out of the barn - still it was odd. I am not real sure what to do with Lucy.

    Should I take her some place else and make her a hibernation area - Leave her where she is?

    Any advice would be very welcome. I really appreciate your time.

    Well you could take it indoors if you want to keep it as a pet, otherwise leaving it where it is at is probably the best idea. It will likely find a place to overwinter on its own eventually.

    Sounds like Lucy knows a thing or two - she will do what suits her. I wouldn't worry about it.
