Fowler's Toad (Bufo fowleri)

DESCRIPTION: Like American Toad, but throat and belly is usually plain colored and has more warts (3 or more) in each dark spot on the back. 2 to 31/2 inches long.

HABITAT: Woodlands, often with sandy soil, such as Lake Michigan dune woodlands.

BREEDING: May-June, in ponds. Eggs in long strings. Tadpoles transform in mid to late summer. Tiny toadlets almost identical to American Toad.

VOICE: A short, bleating cry, like a lamb, but quite unlike the American Toad's trill.

RANGE AND STATUS: Extreme western and southern Lower Peninsula.
