Trillium Ridge Flora and Fauna
American toad
Bufo americanus
Location: All over; several have "houses" near garage; when we had a pond they bred in it and we had thousands of toadlets

Range: Throughout large portions of North America
American toads, Bufo americanus, are only native to the Nearctic region. These toads have an immense ability to adapt to their surroundings as long as there is a source of semi-permanent water for them to use in the breeding season. This quality has allowed them to successfully colonize suburban and agricultural areas.
