American toad

Bufo americanus

The American toad is often brown in color, but can be almost black, and its skin is covered with lots of warts. The underside of the chin and belly are either white or cream in color with black or brown speckles. Its legs are short, stubby and muscular, which helps it hop with ease in a broad variety of environments. Adult size is 2-4 inches.
