Toad Tuesday 9: Woodhouse Toad in New Mexico

Well, I fell short the last couple weeks and missed some Toad Tuesdays. So here is one to get back on track. This Woodhouse’s Toad was seen half-buried in a hollow stump alongside the train in the Bandelier National Monument. Photo taken in-situ. A few people walked by, and the toad seemed unperturbed.

And here is a view of the habitat. I’ve circled the toad in red:

Toad Tuesday 6: Baby American Toads Under Mushroom

The orange mushroom caught my attention, then I realized that two small, recently metamorphosed American Toads were hunkered down nearby.
