Spea intermontana — Great Basin Spadefoot
All spadefoots are inherently comical. This is not a judgment, just an objective fact. But the set of Great Basin Spadefoots I saw on my first night ever of seeing Great Basin Spadefoots were simply ludicrous.
On my last night in Utah, I drove for a few hours in a futile attempt to find at least one more snake. But I did find some more of these ridiculous spadefoots on the road, so I went to bed with a smile on my face.
