Impress your parents with this word. Tell them these bumps are called parotid glands.

We know this is a male because of its black throat. American Toads have a long bump behind each eye.

Found at Elms by children April 2010. He is kept as a temporary pet for the education and enjoyment of our visiting first graders.
