Description

Captured a couple spadefoots after some recent monsoon rains which created some decent temporal pools. They just started calling marking the beginning of their short breeding season. I probably heard and/or observed more than 20 spadefoots that night.

Description from Wikipedia

Couch's spadefoot toad (Scaphiopus couchii) is a species of North American spadefoot toad. The specific epithet couchii is in honor of American naturalist Darius Nash Couch, who collected the first specimen while on a personal expedition to northern Mexico to collect plant, mineral, and animal specimens for the Smithsonian Institution.
