Great Plains Toad
Category: Live from the Ranch

Each summer between late June and mid July, the Great Plains Toads appear out of no where. If there's a rainstorm, their numbers seem to quadruple. They're found in such large numbers near the wetlands-- especially Dollar and Cotton Lakes-- that it's actually hard to walk without stepping on one. They hop around all day, some just the size of a penny, looking for insects in the grass.

Here's a great photo of one taken by Patrick Myers of the Great Sand Dunes NP&P.
