Description:

Wasn't sure if it is a leopard toad or a similar toad, but it resembles a leopard toad in every way EXCEPT the dark bar behind its eyes is connected. However it does not look nearly as similar to any of the toads that usually have that characteristic.

Description:

My father was putting the car away and noticed something hop away when he tried to open the garage door. He got his touch out, saw the toad and called me. I grabbed the camera and took these pictures. I made sure to get a picture of its back for the unique patterns for easier identification.

Afterwards my brother got a container, caught it and released it onto the field. That is the third leopard toad I have seen around the house.

Description:

On the night of the 29th we heard him grunting and found him in the pond, which is part of the bio pool we are making. The next morning he was in our swimming pool, which is about a third full because we are busy converting it into a bio pool. We put him back into the pond but did not see him for the rest of the day. This morning he is back in the pool. I would prefer him to be in the pond or elsewhere.
