This frog was lighter in color, with a whitish grey back with green undertones and a white tummy. I did not think to look at his feet. Duh!
Many toadlets reported (spade-foot because of rain??)
Spea is a genus of North American amphibian commonly referred to as the western spadefoot toad. They differ greatly from true toads (those of the family Bufonidae) by having eyes with vertical pupils, no parotoid gland, and relatively smooth skin. Their most distinctive feature is a spade-like projection on their hind feet, which their common name is derived from. This projection enables spadefoot toads to dig in loose soils with ease.
