This is a little one-inch long Bufo valliceps, Gulf Coast Toad. Adults are two to five inches long with a pale, usually yellowish, stripe down the center, pale underparts and sometimes pale patches on the sides. The head will be heavily ridged with a deep valley between the eyes. It occurs in half of Texas and Louisiana east to MS, west to Big Bend and south to Nicaragua. Wash hands after handling and keep away from pets due to paratoid secretions.
