American Toad (Bufo americanus) from Oxford, Mississippi
A nice-lookin toad, in a rock-grass ripple on the side of a lazy section of the (deep breath) North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River. He was quite tolerant of my attention and I left him where I found him, calling contentedly to the world.
The American Toad (Bufo americanus) is a common species of toad found throughout the eastern United States and Canada. It is divided into three subspeciesâ€”the Eastern American Toad (B. a. americanus), the Dwarf American Toad (B. a. charlesmithi), and the rare Hudson Bay Toad (B. a. copei). Newer taxonomies consider this species Anaxyrus americanus.
