Approx. size of my thumb. Found it while gardening
In the Sandhill ridges of Central Florida
Washington County, Florida, US
I found this oak toad popping around the edge of a trail in Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia. A classic little fella and one that simply didn't want to cooperate. I played hell trying to get this toad to sit still for a moment.
