American Toad

When we’re home in Texas and we see a large toad we know it’s always going to be a Gulf Coast Toad because that’s the common toad in Texas. So, when we saw a big toad here in the park, our first thought was “Gulf Coast Toad.” Then we realized we’re 2000 miles from the Gulf Coast!

A quick look at the field guild told us that what we were seeing was an American Toad, the common toad in Maine.
