Epidalea calamita (Natterjack Toad)

Synonyms: Bufo calamita

Wikipedia Abstract

The natterjack toad (Bufo calamita) is a toad native to sandy and heathland areas of Europe. Adults are 60–70 mm in length and are distinguished from common toads by a yellow line down the middle of the back, and parallel paratoid glands. They have relatively short legs, and this gives them a distinctive gait, contrasting with the hopping movement of many other toad species.
