Toads seem to be important for the residents of Davis. The Toad Hollow may not be physically obvious if one is passing through the highway of the city. This is a number of miniature buildings built to protect frogs that are crossing the road.
At first, Toad Hollow can be mistaken to an underground pipe with the diameter as wide as a bowling ball. The pipes are located just below the busy bridge of Davis next to the city post office. When wildlife advocates learned that a disturbing number of toads get killed by hit and run, they decided to petition for a plea to build the toad tunnel. And in 1995, the local government approved and spent $14,000 of building tunnels through and through the north and southbound roads.
Other locals call it the Frog Tunnel and in 1999, the story of the toad tunnel was published in Ted Puntillo?s The Toads of Davis: A Saga of a Small Town.
