Indus Valley Toad

Duttaphrynus stomaticus. (Formerly Bufo)

Description:

About 2 1/2 inches long, male. Found hopping around our compound under the porch lights. Other, larger specimens were spotted earlier in the evening. Mottled brown, with green striping on the legs, most pronounced on the back legs.

Habitat:

Bagram AB, Parwan, Afghanistan. Found outside after early spring rains.

Notes:

Brought this little guy inside for his photo shoot then sent him back outside. Made a release call while I was holding him to get a picture of his belly. I am not 100% sure this is a D. stomaticus, but I can't find much on the toads over here.
