Title

Boreal Toad (S. Rocky Mtn. Population)

Description

With bumpy green-to-brown skin (occasionally rust or gray) and a thin white stripe along the back, boreal toads look similar to Woodhouse’s toads. Boreal toads occur mostly above 8,000 feet in elevation, whereas Woodhouse’s toads occur mostly below 8,000 feet. Females grow up to 4.3 inches, and males grow up to 3.7 inches. Boreal toads do not have a vocal sac; males emit only a very soft chirp.
