    Talking Fun with Toad Identification (Picture Heavy!)

    Here is a series of pictures of a group of some toads I found over the last few months.

    I will offer one hint: They were all found at the same location, but not at my usual "toad spot".

    Toad #1





    Toad #2




    Toad #3




    Toad #4




    Bonus Picture of Toad #2 showing the amazing yellow spots on the hind quarters. The "armpits' of this specimen are also yellow!

    Watching FrogTV because it is better when someone else has to maintain the enclosure!

    They're all Bufo woodhousii.

    They are in fact all B. woodhousii.

    This is the only one I have ever seen with the yellow. I wish I had better pictures of the yellow. The one I have posted just does not do it justice. There is quite a bit of variation in this species, as you can see.

    Toad #3 is probably one of the most attractively patterned ones I have found yet.

    All the Bufo woodhousii australis I've seen have had yellow on their thighs.
