Eastern American Toad

Anaxyrus americanus americanus


The coloring and pattern is variable in this subspecies. Their skin color can change depending on habitat, humidity, stress, and temperature. Its parotoid glands were the same color as the surrounding skin. This toad was about 3 cm long.


Spotted on the border between a swampy, mixed forest and a meadow.
