American Toad, Or Fowlers Toad? You tell me :)
 
I found this guy under one of my fathers bonsai plant pots.
Dont really know what caused me to move the pot, but i just felt like it i suppose and there he was, all fat and cute.

He didnt even put up a fuss when i picked him up, or pee either, which was pretty surprising :) Pretty docile little guy, and didnt mind me messing with him to get a few photos inside. Enjoy him!

American toad- fowler's have a solid color, unspotted ventral.

An easy way to tell the difference between the American toad and the Fowlers is to count the warts in the spots. :)

Fowlers will have 3-5 warts per spot.

Bufo Americanus only has 1-2 warts per spot.

Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

Quick Alicia, go back in time three months and start using a redundant and less accurate method to determine the species than the one you were already given.
