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!
