Thanks Jellis; that was my understanding, but like I said I am a novice. I appreciate your information :)

From what I see and read, not much difference in looks, only the DNA. Right now the difference is location. Gulf Coast Toad inhabits closer to the gulf coast from Louisiana to Mexico and the Coastal Plain Toad is in the dryer areas of the west Texas.

Hi Jellis; since I am a frog novice can you give me the difference between Bufo nebulifer and Bufo valliceps? I used Texas herps (http://www.herpsoftexas.org/view/frogs) to identify my frogs here in Denton, Tx.
