The Curious Incident of the Toad and the Grow Bag

so im chilling on the sofa, posting stuff on facebook ect ect, when my brother comes flailing his arms and legs shouting 'there's a toad in the conservatory!!!!'
'heh- toad' i thought , i have never seen a real toad in the wild, they have always been misslabled frogs, so i sauntered out into the conservatory, and there it was, chilling in the tomato plants grow bags (my mum has a fetish for tomato plants and so from sept-nov we have infinite amounts of them to eat)
and here he is in all his glory , he puffed himself out a bit because that makes him terrifying :D
he is a fine specimin of the european toad (Bufo bufo) and has almost definately been eating the slugs in the conservatory ...(my mum shall be pleased) apparently, like hedgehogs they are not found in ireland as they never made the crossing before the land masses divided.

Thank you Simon the Toad, you have made my day :D
