These little toads were quarter-size. I found them just after sunset in a small stock pond in the Comanche Grasslands south of La Junta, Colorado.
Hiding in eroding dirt bank near earthen cattle tank. Male.
Caught after dark after an all-day rain.
First of many green toads found this night, this one found on same road minutes from finding the Great Plains toad and mojave rattler. Very productive first road and first go at monsoon road cruising.
