The Mallorcan midwife toad can be found only in the Serra de Tramuntana in Mallorca, Spain. The estimated number of the Mallorcan midwife toad is 50 breeding pairs.
Also called the ferreret, the Mallorcan midwife toad is white in color with olive patterns. The toad has large eyes and more slender than its related species.
The Mallorcan midwife toad eats insects and other invertebrates.
The Mallorcan midwife toad is unusual in that instead of the female, the male carries the eggs. After carrying the eggs on its hind legs for a while, the male then places the eggs in favorable water in the end of July.
The Mallorcan midwife toad, originally named Baleaphryne muletensis, was widely scattered in Mallorca until 2000 years ago; this was deduced from fossils of the Pleistocene age. The decline of the species is caused by loss of habitat, predators, and loss of vegetation. The species is being protected and other toads are being bred in hope of increasing the population.
