Sinaloa Toad

Incilius mazatlanensis
(Taylor, 1940)
Alamos, Sonora, Mexico. August 21, 2011

These robust toads are quite common in Sonora, and we saw plenty within the city limits of Alamos. I got my lifer while walking to my hotel room, and they proved easy to find – any light that attracted insects also drew in these toads. Distinctive features include a robust size, and dark raised ridges partially encircling the eyes and nostrils.

My Flickr album for this species is here.
