Description

The individual was found in the middle of a paved road in a residential area. There were no trees and only small shrubs located within 4m of it. This area is in direct sunlight during most of the day. This road is not heavily trafficked with a car driving down it most often about every 30-60 mins. Appeared to have been driven over several days earlier.
There are no ponds or other natural or man made water features within 70-80 m of where the toad was found. A resident of the neighborhood said that they occasionally see toads but most often only after they have been run over. Conditions at the time were mostly cloudy, ~78F with ~16 mph SSE winds. It was identifiable by its warty skin, appearance of prominent dorsal lateral ridge, broad, dark lateral strip boarded above by a light stripe on each side, and light line down the center of its back.
