Burrowing Toads of the United States


This frog lacks a breastbone. The pupil is vertical. In addition, its tongue is attached in the back and free in the front, unlike the typical toad or frog, so that it protrudes like the tonge of most vertebrates. Rhinophynus is adept at burrowing, making use of the spade on each hindfoot to shuffle backward into the soil. Breeding males clasp the female around the waist. Eggs are laid in the water.



 

There is only one species of Burrowing Toad in the U.S.

Mexican Burrowing Toad (Rhinophrynus dorsalis)

Found in extreme southern Texas into Mexico.
