Fowler's Toad (Bufo fowleri)

Statewide statewide in NC in a variety of habitats. Casual identification can be tricky, but Fowler's Toads differ from American Toad and Southern Toad in that Fowler's have 3 or more warts contained in each large black spot on their backs. Also, Fowler's Toads do not have a prominent cranial ridge between the eye and the paratoid gland.
