Description

A dead and dried Anuran that had been found along one of the dirt roads of the Southwestern Herp Society's field site.

I've estimated the snout to vent length at approximately 4 cm, and due to the faint, white dorsal stripe running from snout to vent, I've tentatively identified this specimen as a California Toad
