This puffy looking little toad was just as tiny as those in my preceding posts, but it was pudgy looking.
I have speculated about it. Could it have suffered an injury, like perhaps a sting from a wasp? Has it the ability to puff up as some sort of self-protection mechanism? Or is it simply a different variety of toad? It was the only one like this I spotted, but that is the case for the tiny green and mud-colored frog from an earlier post, so it is probably not a significant fact. The toad acted pretty much like all its other minuscule cousins, so if it had sustained an injury, it did not appear to be life threatening.
