I was getting ready to cut the grass today got the weed-wacker out and just as I was about to start trimming I saw this grey stone in the grass. I touched it with the weed-wacker and it was soft. Then I bent down and saw 2 beady eyes looking up at me. I don't live close to any water areas. I think the nearest stream is about a half mile away. When I told my wife about the frog she mentioned the neighbor said about 2 weeks ago that frogs would be coming out. I just curious if anyone has heard of that and what type of frog/toad is he/she? (didn't look between the legs... ) I put him in a little container and took him to the nearest stream and released him there.




And in before all the "dibs on your guns" and "it's a chupacabra" statements

Just a toad, we have them all over the place. Good job just letting him go.

it's a toad not a frog

put him in your garden

they lay waste to bugs and such, really good for the garden

they can get to be about fist sized. (really)

I don't have a garden, and I was kind of concerned that he might not be near enough water to keep his skin moist, so that's why I released him by the stream. Plus I've got 3 ankle biters/chihuahuas that would go after him.


Thanks to both of you for the answers

LMAO!


when the rains really come you will see them everywhere. they come out in numbers then!
Growing up my buddy and I used to catch them in a low area that would fill up with water when it rained. fogs and toads and the occasional salamander. we would probably catch 30-40 in a night easy!

I found that site earlier, but wasn't too sure if that toad was in there. I'm starting to think it was a Plains Spade Foot
