Red-spotted Toad

Bufo Punctatus - Red-Spotted Toad
These photos of a Red-spotted Toad were taken at the bottom of the Grand Canyon along the trail from the helicopter landing area to the boat dock. It is about a half mile below the Quartermaster Point area. The Red-spotted Toad survives the hot and dry spells in the canyon by burrowing way down into the mud.

Red-spotted Toads absorb moisture from damp rocks.
