If enough frogs are calling at once, the noise sounds something like running machinery, and people sometimes hear this so-called chorus (KOR-us) of breeding calls from up to a mile away. Outside of the breeding season, however, people rarely see this frog. It is not popular in the pet trade. It did, however, draw at least a little attention in 2004 when a part-time stunt-man rode his unicycle in Death Valley, California, to raise awareness of the Mesoamerican burrowing toad.
