A frog, I assume a stream frog of sorts, but that is about as much as I can add here. Hope the pics are enough for an ID?

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.
