Eastern Narrowmouth Toad

in Tribe Steem Up!last month

Check out this frog !

Yes, it's called a "toad" even in its name, but technically it is a frog. The Eastern Narrowmouth Toad (Gastrophryne carolinensis) is a species that I had not encountered until I moved to the Ozarks, and we are near the northern edge of their range. These are a small amphibian, with a very distinct look to them. They have a small, pointed head, and a really flat and wide body. They particularly enjoy eating ants, and we are happy to be able to find them here on our property. Here's some recent photos. Enjoy!
