This endangered species has brown or green skin covered in warts, which are typically bright red or yellow, and has the distinguishing feature of a thin, bold, yellow stripe down its back.
Natterjack toads are endangered in the UK and therefore have strict protection under British and European law. They have full protection under schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
Never take adult natterjack toads or their tadpoles from the wild (it is an offence to do so). Take care not damage habitats that are good for natterjack toads as habitat loss is one of the main reasons for their decline. If you find a colony of natterjack toads then please inform the Norfolk Biological Record Centre.
