Fowler’s toad Anaxyrus fowleri

Both of us seeking, a pale, straight stripe scoots away from my startled light

Fowler’s toads, seen mostly at night, inhabit every part of Virginia and its diverse habitats of woodlands, grasslands, river and stream banks, and beaches. Usually brown or gray, these toads display a light-colored stripe down their backs, with three or more warts on the large dark spots alongside the stripe. Fowler’s toads enjoy favorite foods, ants and beetles. In late spring, the males make a buzzy -- nasal call, sounding somewhat like a baby’s cry or sheep’s bleat. When startled, they quickly hop away. Wash your hands after contact to avoid irritation to your eyes and nose.
