So Vickie and I were talking about this 'frog' that Zachary brought home last night, and we both started researching it online. Turns out it may actually have been a Sonoran Desert toad, also known as a Colorado River toad.
You can read more about it here.
I got this picture from the Arizona-Desert Sonora Museum website. And interestingly enough, Noah and I are visiting this museum tomorrow with his preschool class.
Oh, and if this truly was a Desert Sonoran toad, it can be toxic enough to kill a full grown dog! Yikes!
I think we're done collecting desert wildlife for a while, and I must say, I'm quite relieved...
