Scaphiopus holbrookii, 22 October 2017

Scaphiopus holbrookii, the Eastern spadefoot;
Marion county, Florida (22 October 2017, Nikon D7100).

A small, reclusive amphibian sporadically strewn across stretches of peninsula Florida, Eastern spadefoots (Scaphiopus holbrookii) spend much of their time burrowed beneath the surface. They’re a bit more prone to coming out at night — especially after a nice, lovely rain.
