Toad with organisms in head?

Asked June 18, 2016, 10:28 PM EDT

I saw this toad in my yard which had burrowed a spot in the grass. It had a hole on top of it's head with "moving little white balls". Very peculiar looking. I thought it might be producing spawn, but after googling, apparently this was abnormal. These little white balls receded into the toad's head when I poked it with a blade of grass. What in the world is this?
