Rust Colored Toad (Frog?)

I tried to find this amphibian's picture online but didn't know enough to figure out what he is. If you know, please comment.

The sounds in the night video are not coming from this fellow; he was very quiet because Ben and I were nearby.

  1. Hmm, I'm thinking that might be an Eastern American Toad ("puffed up", of course). But that's just my admittedly unscientific guess!

  2. Thanks. He's certainly plump enough to be a toad!
