Spadefoot Toad Found After Hurricane

Eastern Spadefoot Toad (Scaphiopus holbrookii)

Look what my daughters found for me when we were cleaning up after Hurricane Irene: a spadefoot toad. I know that I featured this species before but wanted to include it in this year’s posts.

I love the fingers and the webbed feet on this critter.

I’m running out of time to find reptiles and amphibians on my property this year. Next year I think I’ll focus on trees instead. So much nature to explore!

    I’m so sorry that you are suffering so much from “Irene”. It is devastating for so many people, and my heart breaks for every single person. We live in North Carolina near Charlotte…we didn’t have problems here, but much of NC was badly affected. My prayers are with you and your famiy. God bless you.
