Great Plains Toad
Notes on this species:
The genus Anaxyrus was split from Bufo by Frost et al in 2006. Most references still use the long-established Bufo.

Like the Couch's Spadefoot
, this is another relatively common toad in southern Arizona, but one which I had not yet seen. This one was a particularly regal slob of a toad, wouldn't you say?
