The American Toad - Bufo americanus 

Last Thursday Reiman Gardens opened it's Dinosaur exhibit. While taking pictures I heard the trilling of Bufo americanus. It's a beautiful song. In my neighborhood I am lucky to hear one or two. Here it was a chorus.

Click on the picture and you'll see the full image. Note the pouch under his chin. The little guy is singing his heart out.

You can find a close up of this elegant black fellow on the Clemson University site:
