Do toads/frogs carry their babies on back?
Seen toad carrying another didn't know if it was mother tranfering her young or caught two mating?
According to what I have read on the web, some frogs do carry their tadpoles on their hind legs.
If you saw a toad carrying another toad on its back, then they were probably mating as a toad's young are different from their adult versions because they're tadpoles.
However, there are frogs that do carry their young eggs/tadpoles on their backs so they can move them to a body of water.
For example, the poison-arrow frog. They law their eggs on damp leaf litter, and when the babies grow into tadpoles the mother gathers up the tadpoles on her back and carries them up trees and dumps them in pools of water that gather in bromeliads.

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?
