Abstract: Toads were collected from two sites in Cheshire from March to November. Body length (snout to vent), jaw width , hind leg length and weight were measured. Three size ranges were observed and compared. Body length was found to be positively correlated to jaw width , hind leg length and weight and was used to calculate the growth rates over the year. It was determined that the percentage increase in size decreased with age.
