Thanks so much for submitting your images of the Red Spotted Desert Toad, Bufo punctatus, after noticing its conspicuous absence in our archives. According to Desert Museum: “This toad is found from southern Nevada to southwestern Kansas, south to Hidalgo, Mexico, and throughout Baja California. It occurs from below sea level up to 7000 feet (1980 m).”

Thank you! It was good to see one again. They used to be more usual but are getting scarce.
