Great Plains Toad
ORDER: ANURA | FAMILY: BUFONIDAE
The Great Plains Toad occurs across much of the interior regions of North America, from Minnesota to Nevada, and south into central Mexico. Within the Atlas region, this species inhabits the Imperial Valley of California and northern Baja California and the flood basin of the Colorado River. In both desert regions, it exploits irrigation systems and is likely expanding its range in association with agricultural practices.
