  1. Oooh! I'm in love <3

    1. I found another today, under the tarp with construction supplies. It was a dark brown to black color! Hopefully, I got some good shots. He/she wasn't happy to see me and hopped away very quickly (to go hide again). Posted one year ago
      1. Fantastic! Posted one year ago
    2. P.S. This one was SO chunky! :D Check out the side view! Posted one year ago, modified one year ago
      1. YES! I love its chunk :) Posted one year ago
        1. Oh, and have you heard about the Anaxyrus fowleri x Anaxyrus americanus hybrids? I know they DO exist, and I was wondering if this might actually be one as one of the spots on its back has 3 warts within. Or is it common for A. americanus to have the occasional spot with 3 warts? Posted one year ago
          1. I did not hear about hybrids! I wonder if this is one or if it's just a fluke/normal? Posted one year ago
            1. I'm not sure. Might have to ask my local herper friend, Jeremy Southers, about it! Posted one year ago

The American toad is a common species of toad found throughout the eastern United States and Canada. It is divided into three subspecies—the eastern American toad , the dwarf American toad , and the rare Hudson Bay toad . A new taxonomy places this species in the genus ''Anaxyrus'' instead of ''Bufo''.
