Southern Toad (Anaxyrus terrestris)


Central Florida Critter of the Day

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Southern Toad (Anaxyrus terrestris)

Diet: Ants, bees, beetles, crickets, roaches, snails, and other invertebrates.

If you look closely at the photo, to the left of the head you can see a dragonfly nymph (might be exuvia). The scientific name use to be Bufo terrestris.


The following photo of the back really shows the prominent crests and oval glands which distinquish it from the invasive Cane Toad.
