During a recent camping trip in Bennet Springs, Missouri my kids found this little toad. I could not identify it among the toads of Missouri, so I do not have a label for it yet. Feel free to identify this toad for me if you know what it is.

My son and I found the same little toad in our yard, West Plains MO. Have you received any feedback for identification? Just looking for more info to keep this little guy alive. Please let me know if anyone has more information.

We found the same toad in our back yard by our pool. We live in Troy MO. It measured about 3/16 of an inch. We were amazed at how tiny it was. Our camera wouldn't zoom in enough to get a good close up of it. We would also like to know what it is!

I live in Valley Park MO and these little guys are hopping everywhere! My neice and I caught one we keep him in an aquarium with mulch and an area where he can get in and out of the water. We have a stick if he wants to clinb. We feed him small crickets which we buy at the pet store. He has made it for over a month, so I guess he is happy.
