Gastrophryne carolinensis, 07 June 2013

Gastrophryne carolinensis, the Eastern narrowmouth toad;
Lake county, Florida (07 June 2013).

I do adore the awkward frumpiness of an Eastern narrowmouth toad. This chunky nub of amphibia is mostly fossorial; they spend most of their time somewhat hidden under surface detritus and in loose soil. They do, however, seem to come out into plain view after a solid rain.
