Description

An apparently leucistic individual; not albino because the eyes aren't pink. I suspect this is Scaphiophus couchii, but it could perhaps be Spea multiplicity instead. Hard for me to tell without pattern/color cues.

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!

Description from Wikipedia

The plains spadefoot toad (Spea bombifrons) is a species of spadefoot toad which ranges from southwestern Canada, throughout the Great Plains of the western United States, and into northern Mexico. Like other species of spadefoot toads, they get their name from a spade-like projections on their hind legs which allow them to dig into sandy soils.
