Paso Frog

Not exactly our backyard, but I spotted this guy while on vacation in the Peachy Canyon area west of Paso Robles.

Can't seem to match him to anything on http://californiaherps.com. Anyone recognize him?

(Edited to add) The more I look, the more I am thinking California Toad with coloring a little bit outside the norm.  One of the photos is captioned "Adult emerging from a California ground squirrel burrow," which is the situation I found this guy in.

Not sure what species he is, but he is kinda cool.  Smile

A little tardy on the reply... that is a California Toad. Nice picture!

Thanks for the confirmation!  I think he's cooler looking than the California toad photos that come up on Google images Smile
