Species:

Anaxyrus cognatus

Great Plains Toad

Notes on this species:
The genus Anaxyrus was split from Bufo by Frost et al in 2006. This split is particularly controversial among herpetologists, and many references still use the long-established Bufo.

Here's another regal slob, with much greener blotches. These toads look so very proud.
