Information about the Great Plains Toad:
The Great Plains Toad is a relatively large species of toad. It ranges from southern Alberta, throughout the midwest United States and the inland western United States into northern Mexico. It can grow to anywhere between 2 and 4.5 inches (5.1 and 11 centimeters) long. Its primary diet is various species of worms and other small invertebrates. It often burrows in the ground, so this toad generally favors open grasslands with loose soil. Breeding occurs throughout the spring and summer months, most often immediately after heavy rainfall. In dry areas it may only emerge from its burrow for a few weeks when conditions are right, and usually at night, but in areas with permanent water bodies and abundant rain it may be active all day. Its mating call is a very loud, harsh chirping noise repeated many times, very fast. The toad is predated by the plains garter snake (Thamnophis radix).
