Description

This toad was only about two inches long and very brick red. He was in a very shady area and was pretty quick. It made getting good photos a challenge.

Description

The toad was mostly brown and tan with a lighter/white stripe down the middle of it's back. It was about 3-4 cm off the ground and 6-7 cm long. Its skin was bumpy and rough. It had particularly large bumps behind its eyes. For the whole time I observed it it did not move much from the embankment by a stream it was on.

Description from Wikipedia

The American toad (Bufo americanus) is a common species of toad found throughout the eastern United States and Canada. It is divided into three subspecies—the eastern American toad (B. a. americanus), the dwarf American toad (B. a. charlesmithi), and the rare Hudson Bay toad (B. a. copei). A new taxonomy considers this species Anaxyrus americanus.
