The desert Southwest

is full of sounds.

Skitter, skitter, scratch.

A scorpion is crawling.

Pop, pop, pop.

kangaroo rat is hopping.

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

A rattlesnake is

shaking its tail.

But the spadefoot toad

is quiet in her

underground burrow,

listening for one sound

in particular...

What is that sound?

And what will the

spadefoot toad do

when she hears it?
