Visitors gather to help hundreds of thousands of tiny western toads migrate across a local highway.

However, the unique event will be a little different this year as many of the tiny amphibians aren’t ready to cross the road.

“The breeding happened earlier than [it has] for decades and we thought that this would actually be past the peak of the toadlet migration, but as you can see these toadlets they’ve got tiny tails,” event organizer Angus Glass said.
