    Default American Toad or Gray tree frog froglets?

    Recently I came across 4 gray tree frogs (or what I assumed to be gray tree frogs). Someone mentioned that they were american toads. I am having trouble telling what they are and knowing what kind of frogs/toads they are would be very helpful. Can anyone help me identify these frogs?Name:  3 baby froggies on a bush.jpg

    Definitely toads, could be American toads- depends on what occurs in your area. As toadlets, species are often difficult to distinguish from each other.
    Feed them LOTS of tiny invertebrates at this size. Give them as much as they can hold.

    Thank you so much, that was what I was thinking with the help of someone, but i just had to be 100% sure because i want to give them the best care. I live in Eastern Missouri so could they be an american toad/fowlers toad? Or are there other toad species here that look like this one. If you know of what they possibly could be let me know! Thanks so much.

    They look like americanus to me, but I honestly wouldn't try to ID them until they've put on some size. They will change as they grow, and the characteristics by which you can identify them will become more apparent.
