Western Toad

Bufo boreas

Notes:

I think this is the Western Toad, but it doesn't have the dorsal stripe. I guess it could be a juvenile, but this one was already really large. I don't think it looks like pictures of American Bullfrogs I have seen.

Thanks! I agree.

The location and weak cranial crests both point to Western Toad. Perhaps just an unusual looking one

It's definitely a toad...
