Toads can live just about anywhere but prefer living near areas that are lush and receive a fair amount of rainfall. For that reason, you will usually find them near ponds, lakes, streams, creeks, and other forms of fresh water. If you’ve noticed them around your house lately and you don’t live particularly close to a large body of water, it could be because your area has experienced a lot of rain lately. As it rains more and more, toads will be drawn to marshy, swampy areas that can include large patches of wet grass and even mud puddles.

Unlike frogs, toads have thick skins so they don’t have to stay as well hydrated. Toads are able to live further away from bodies of water than frogs, therefore you’re more likely to find toads in places where you least expect them, such as in your back yard. There are a few places that toads are not native to; these include New Guinea, Greenland, Australia, Madagascar, New Zealand, and the polar areas where it’s too cold for them to survive.

Female toads are larger than male toads and despite the fact that they can live outside of water for a long period of time, they still like to lay their eggs in water after they have mated.

During the daytime, toads mostly like staying well hidden and tend to burrow under leaves, tree trunks, and other dark places. They are nocturnal and generally come out at night, although they can be seen during the daylight hours if they are disturbed.

Try looking in the early morning, afternoon, or a nighttime. Toads like to burry themselves in dirt so they might be hard to see. You will likely find a toad hopping around after a rainstorm. You can also look AROUND rivers and creeks. Especialy around mateing season. Thats june and july. Toads don't live in the actual water like frogs do.  Toads also like to hide. Check under leaves, in grass, around rocks and wood. Hope this helped a little. Peace to the outtie! =)

Apart from the poles, Greenland, Australia and New Zealand, toads live in all parts of the world. Unlike frogs that live near water, toads can live further away from water than frogs can. Although both frogs and toads are amphibians but the toads have a tougher skin as compared with frogs so the water does not vaporize and dry out that easy as a frog's. Toads normally rest in the days in burrows or trees where they are undetected under the leaves however, they hibernate only in burrows. The species of toad normally found in the states is Fowler's toad.

Toads can be found in moist, grassy places like marshes. Some toads can be found in water or right in your backyard chilling out in your pool if you have not cleaned your pool and it's all green and disqusting. Please take my advice and look for toads in the places I listed above.

A full grown Toad lives on land. In a damp place. More or less a swamp-like area. But tadpoles live in water.
