lunfor Editors Quix otv QUESTION: Does a toad give people warts? ANSWER: The toad may not be vary handsome, but it it harmless and a useful friend of man. Toads live in gardens, under porches, in fields and by the roadsides, and they eat Insects. Gardeners especially should welcome them. , The toad has a rough skin which looks "warty." It gives off a substance that is disagreeable to some animals and is a defense weapon for the toad, but it can not give warts to a person. If it gets into our eyes, though, it is most unpleasant. However, the substance doesn't seem to bother the toad's worst enemies, garter snakes and water snakes, who dine on toads regularly. The toad is related to the frog, but is much clumsier. FOR YOU TO DO: See If you can find a toad in the garden.. Don't molest him but watch closely for awhile and you may see hjajsd eatch an insect by flicking out his long tongue. BJ (Neil G. Matthews of Niagara«on-rhe<Lake, Canada, won $10 for this question. Send yours to AP Newsfeatures in care of this paper. Tomorrow: What happened when Moses struck the rock with his staff?)
