natterjack definition and meaning

What is a "natterjack"?

A natterjack is a species of toad native to parts of Europe. It is characterized by its distinctive yellow or greenish warts and a yellow stripe down its back. Natterjacks are known for their unique vocalizations, producing a loud, rattling call during the breeding season. They are primarily found in sandy habitats, such as heathlands, dunes, and coastal areas. Natterjacks are adapted to a semi-aquatic lifestyle, with their breeding ponds playing a crucial role in their reproductive cycle. They are considered protected species due to habitat loss and fragmentation, highlighting the importance of conservation efforts to preserve their populations.
