Greenish, yellowish with dark drown spots. Found this little guy near a creosote bush after sunset.

Second day of the Big Bend Nature Fest -- Elizabeth and I went to excellent lectures by Greg Lasley, Chuck Sexton and others. Learned a ton. The star-gazing event was a bit too cloudy, however, we still spotted neat things on the drive! :)
I'll have to work on the ID's for many of these later on. LOTS of new plants and critters for me in Big Bend! :)
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.
