You don't see me... Posted by Hello


I realized I hadn't posted a frog picture recently. Can't have that! Since the only frogs I have seen out and about lately are frogs that I have already posted pictures of, I dug into my files from last August to bring you something new.

This very attractive fellow is an Eastern Spadefoot Toad (Scaphiopus holbrooki). We seldom see spadefoot toads. They spend much of their time underground and come out mainly at night so it was a real treat to find this one following heavy rains last August. I'll post pictures of his "spades" later - if and when I ever figure out how to include more than one photo in a single post. :)

He forgot to close his eyes so his InvisoPower would come on. Silly froggy!

Hey Swamp

Sorry, but you can't post more than one picture using Hello. But if you take a few extra steps, painful as they are, you can be tricksy. When you get two or more posts, just copy and paste the code into one blog. Save the originals as drafts until you are done. It takes a few steps, but I do it often.

Thanks AC, I'll give it a try.

Bloggy, he does have some outrageous eyes. Wait until you see the picture of his legs -- this toad has some serious muscles!

Quit teasing and just post those suckers.

That little camo frog is CUTE. :)
Can't wait to see the spades. He's quite the muscular, little devil, eh? Ought to be interesting.
