This is either an Eastern American Toad or a Fowler's Toad. I almost stepped on it but is felt or saw me coming and hoipped smartly out of the way.

Anaxyrus americanus americanus

Size
2 - 3˝ inches
Record - 4⅜ inches
Appearance
A “warty” toad. Only one or two large warts in each of the largest dark spots on an otherwise brownish-red, gray or olive back.
The wart count is the main way to differentiate between this and Fowler’s Toad, our most common Coastal Plain toad.

The parotoid glands are either separated from the ridge behind the eye or connected by a short spur.
The chest and forward part of the abdomen are usually darkly spotted, and warts are enlarged on the arms.
May hybridize with Fowler’s Toad.
