Description

I saw this little guy while I was sitting on the front porch of my cabin at Camp Tekoa in Hendersonville, NC last week. He was about the size of my hand. He was tanish/brown with lots of bumps all over. He let me get so close to him! I got to watch him eat a little lizard and some bugs, which was super cool!

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.
