American Toad, Anaxyrus americanus

The American Toad is found throughout the Eastern United States and Canada. There are three subspecies including the Eastern American Toad, the Dwarf American Toad and the Hudson Bay Toad. These amphibians require a semi-permanent freshwater pond or pool to breed as well as dense patches of vegetation for hunting and hiding. They prey on worms, insects and other small invertebrates. Toads have cranial parotoid glands which produces bufotoxin, a mild poison that makes them unpalatable to predators.

Museum Quality Scan

The drawings have been professionally scanned by the historic Athenaeum of Philadelphia on their Cruse Scanner to capture every detail down to the finest hair in order to produce a print as close to the original work as possible.
