Eastern American Toad

Bufo americanus


Green and brown with bumps.


Under the bushes in our yard.


Found in our yard by Wyatt (age 7), then Haley (age 9) played with it for about an hour (Yuk!). First thing when she came in the house we said "WASH YOUR HANDS!".

Did a little research today and identified our friend as an Eastern American Toad. Added Wikipedia and EOL Links with additional information.

It's a toad, but all toads are frogs. I'm not sure exactly which species of toad you have there, and the taxonomy has been under scrutiny lately.
