Found on road 209 (on asphalt) on rainy evening. About a dozen of others living specimens were also observed around the same stretch. Several more (about 20) had been killed by cars. We also observed about half a dozen Pacific chorus frogs (dead and alive) and 40 (dead and alive) western toads.

Description from Wikipedia

Spea is a genus of North American amphibian commonly referred to as the western spadefoot toads. They differ greatly from true toads (those of the family Bufonidae) by having eyes with vertical pupils, no parotoid glands, and relatively smooth skin. Their most distinctive feature is a spade-like projection on their hind feet, from which their common name is derived. This projection enables spadefoot toads to dig in loose soils with ease.
