Eastern Narrowmouth Toad
Gastrophryne carolinensis

Size:  3/4 - 1 1/4 inches
Distribution
Eastern 1/4 of the state.  The eastern narrowmouth toad, as well as the great plains narrowmouth toad, has a plump, flattened body with a comparatively small head, and a fold of skin behind the eyes to act as a wiper while feeding on their favorite prey, ants and termites. This secretive frog is a nocturnal species, prefering to spend most of the day under moist logs and in burrows.  These frogs breed during the summer and the males call can be easily identified as a short buzzing sound somewhat like a lamb.
