Especially for Jane

I have a friend who reads this blog on occasion and she loves her reptiles and amphibians. So, just for Ranger Jane, here is a picture of the great big toad Treebeard and I found on the trail in Baxter State Park in Maine.

Meet Baxter, the honking-big Maine toad. As close as I can tell it is an American toad (Bufo americanus). It was quite impressive and of course, it peed all over Treebeard's hand.

It was, without a doubt, the largest native toad we have ever seen.

Mr. B,
I will pass that salute on the Ranger Jane ASAP.

Lynne -
He is beautiful. I adore toads. Not only are they cute, they have the most winning personalities.

SQMojo -
No worries over warts - you can't get them from toads. Warts are spread by viruses.
