Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Bufo woodhousii australis
Southwestern Woodhouse's Toad

Cochise Co., Arizona
August 3, 2000

Another 'road toad' encountered in the flat grasslands just west of the Chiricahuas, as pocket thunderstorms boiled up around us in the dark.  The elongated paratoid glands behind the eye, coupled with the pale dorsal stripe, are good identifying field marks for woodhousii.
