Looks like a toadlet of a bufo species.

This is not a leopard frog http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_fro... but, a pacific tree frog. Notice the the round sticky toe pads used for cimbing. This indicates a hylid (frog in the family hylidae) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hylidae unlike a leopard frog, a true frog. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranidae Also see the distinctive stripe across the eye, witch confirms the species. I am not sure why your specimen is camo patterned, however I have found one of this pattern myself. It is probably caused by a recessive mutation.

Realese next too your house just outside where you found it. It will eat bugs for so it would be best too put it in a garden area if you have one.
