Toad Lubber
A friend found one of these guys on March 22, 2009, in the area around Iraan and Sheffield, Texas. Very big, very well camouflaged. She brought him back to Midland so we could identify him (first for both of us), and then we turned him loose near our Sibley Nature Center, where we have been told there are some more of them, though not nearly as big as the one she found.
