I am unsure of the ID on this one, but the toad was outside of a ranch house in Atascosa County. I was walking to my truck, which was parked just off the caliche ranch road. Surrounding habitat was a mesquite parkland with plains bristlegrass, guinea grass, and bermudagrass. It was in close proximity to a greenhouse and outside vegetable garden.

This Texas Toad was calling from a gravel lined parking area for fracking trucks. It had obviously previously been a temporary wetland that was destroyed to make a parking area.
