American toad

Anaxyrus americanus

American toads are often brown in color, but can be almost black, and their skin is covered with lots of warts. The underside of their chins and bellies are either white or cream in color with black or brown speckles. Their legs are short, stubby and muscular, which helps them hop with ease in a broad variety of environments. Adult size is 2-4 inches.
