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:
Gulf Coast Toad (Bufo nebulifer AKA Incilius nebulifer):
Newton County, Texas.
Tadpole of an American Toad:
The orange mushroom caught my attention, then I realized that two small, recently metamorphosed American Toads were hunkered down nearby.
And here the toads are!
