Bufo [Anaxyrus] americanus
American toad is the most broadly distributed species in the family Bufonidae in North America. They are most active at night. Sometimes toads return to the same location every day.
Notes from Ikumi: I encountered this toad at our community garden in Cherry Hill in the early evening.
Why Scientific Illustration?
Scientific illustration plates are used in many parks, books, and field guides. It is important that illustrators understand the subject matter, so it’s very helpful to make small studies and sketches to study and understand the animal’s posture and behavior.
