Coastal plains toad

Incilius nebulifer


The Coastal Plains Toad is notable from the other toads in the family Bufonidae because its in a different genus Incilius. This genus has a more defined cranial crest than Anaxyrus. This one lives in a gutter hole in our back yard, and occasionaly comes out in the sun. This widespread and common toad is not threatened, but is least concerned on IUCN 3.1.


It is found on the coast of Gulf of Mexico from Veracruz in Mexico to Mississippi in the United States. Can be found in coastal prairies, barrier beaches, towns, gardens. Or where you can see where their breeding takes place, which is in swamp like watery areas.


Was basking in the sun.

I've seen a lot of toads in the Houston, Port Neches areas, but never come across this one. Now I know what to look for. Thanks for sharing Saturniidae.
