This Western toad was hopping across a bike road near the Sunriver Observatory and Nature center in Oregon, when I picked him up. There were plenty of Garter snakes in the same area meaning that these toads are there source of food.
The western toad (Anaxyrus boreas) more commonly known as Bufo boreas (both names accurate) is a large toad species, between 5.6 and 13 cm long, of western North America. It has a white or cream dorsal stripe, and is dusky gray or greenish dorsally with skin glands concentrated within the dark blotches. Its parotoid glands are oval, widely separated, and larger than the upper eyelids. It has a mottled venter and horizontal pupils but lacks cranial crests.
