Green toads are typically bright to pale green in color, with black spotting3 They are not large toads; adult males are about 37–46 mm 15–18 in in snout–vent length and females 44–54 mm 17–21 in4
Habitat and reproductionedit
Green toads are relatively widespread and at least locally common1 They are secretive, however, only readily found during and immediately after periods of rainfall; their habitat is semi-arid and often very dry Breeding occurs from late March to August, stimulated by summer rains Males move from drier, terrestrial habitat to aquatic breeding sites where they form choruses Females are attracted by chorusing males Breeding aggregations do not usually last long, only a few days4
Two subspecies, originally described as separate species, can be identified,234 but this distinction is disputed:2
- Eastern green toad, Anaxyrus debilis debilis
- Western green toad, Anaxyrus debilis insidior
- European green toad Bufo viridis, a species that is only distantly related, but shares the same common name
