Description

California Toad seems to match description and photos online. Greenish toad, approximately 2 inches. Found at late dusk, captured long enough to photograph and returned to capture location for release. While we carried it, we heard small squeaks.

Dark green circles around raised red bumps (warts). Pale strip down spine. Reddish parotid glands behind eyes.
