Southern Toad


I found this guy sitting on the road during an evening search around 8:30 p.m.
The coloring of this toad is usually brown but can be red, gray, or black.
The two prominent ridges between the eyes ending in conspicious knobs behind the eyes are clearly visible and distinguish the Southern Toad from other toad species.
