American toad

Anaxyrus americanus

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''.
Anaxyrus americanus americanus (Eastern American Toad) in a cornfield in late summer in northern Minnesota, USA. I saw this toad in a cornfield and given the lateness of the season think it was probably looking for a hibernation site in the debris.
