Couch's Spadefoot -  Scaphiopus couchii - When the rains fall in Arizona, thousands of these toads emerge from the soil and go in search of mates and food. They lay eggs wherever water has pooled up. The eggs hatch in less than two days and tadpoles become toadlets in about a week. After a month or two of rainy nights, the toads bury themselves and sleep for 8-10 months.
