Awesome how you understand and appreciate what so many would completely miss!
Not so adorable if you are a bug.But then I don't like most bugs.
She's cute! I've never seen a toad that big.
Wow she is a big one at that. Kinda neat.MB
Wow! She is huge Tex. Glad you spotted her and opted today. Have a lovely weekend
A big cutie is trying to explore your house.Will there be any of her love one inside?
Surely, a very regal toad! The green clippings add that touch of something special!
Good heavens, that thing is HUGE! My sister would absolutely freak out if she came across one like that. She's terrified of them.
Hi Theresa - fantastic photos ... amazing creature and she sure is huge. Wonderful to see her and her size ... love these .. cheers Hilary
What a magnificent creature.
That's huge - what do you feed them on over there? I'm thinking she could get a double wormburger with fries and a shake. That aside - always a privilege to see creatures in the wild. I'm glad you told us what the green specks were.
Hello Tex, it sure is a big toad. I think they are so cute, adorable photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
Awww..such a cutie!
Belle surprise quand même . Quel bel animal dont la taille reste surprenante. Te voilà avec un ami de plus.Bon weekend. Amitiés.Roger
she is adorable and i have never seen one that big except in photos.. we have them about half that size but have not seen one in a long time
Wow!!So big Tex but very cute!!Lovely pictures!Have a happy weekend!Dimi...
She's is a matriarch indeed and I didn't realise how big she was until you put your hand beside her!Great closeups! i posted frogs today also!
Oh, it's huge!
That is a ginormous toad.
She kinda resembles a pecan half in the first photo so I was shocked to see how large she is in comparison to your hand. She's an interesting find. Have a lovely weekend!
Very huge and very cute! :)
Oh what a nice big toad . Lovely photos . I cant wait for our toads to come out they do make for interesting photos . Have a good weekend !
TNT--Texan Toad. :-)
Frogs and toads are beautiful!
Oh, I adore toads! I love their sweet toes and bold manner. Years ago, we kept getting water pouring into the basement when it rained. It appeared to be coming from the dryer vent outside. My husband tried to feel for a crack in the vent, laid on the ground, arm in the vent up to his shoulder...when he felt something move! He just about ripped his arm off trying to get out of the vent! Out hopped a very confused toad. To this day, my husband still doesn't like toads!
I love how she posed for that 3rd pic.
I've never seen one that large in person. WOW
I've always like toads and frogs when I was young. That is one awesome toad!
Well I don't know too much about toads, but you've certainly captured this one well ...All the best Jan
No where but Texas would they get this big. This one was the leader of the family wherever they might be.
Well they say everything is bigger in Texas and apparently so is your toad, lol... How can you tell it's a she? Hugs,JB
How do you know it's a "she" ? Big one, all right! :-)
Morning,oh my!!!! That is one large toad!!!! Blessings Francine.
i remember you said you just mowed the grass....i thought she was going moldy in her old age ;) hehehe i'm glad you did the comparison shot, i did not realize how mighty she was....texas, where everything is bigger and better!!!!
What a treasure!!! Looks like a normal toad but I've never seen one that big either.
Toad enormous. There is something to admire. Regards.
I held my hand out and imagined her there. What a wonderful experience! Great photos. You have been chosen to encounter such a wonderful creature to share its beauty! Thanks.
She's a beaut!!
That would be a big surprise to find at your door! So his camouflage wasn't good enough so he added some grass!
I think they are too, and you have a true friend there!
What a big girl! I was wondering what the green stuff was. :) I used to love picking up toads as a little girl. However I won't do it as an adult since I'm afraid of getting peed on!
Maybe a cane toad. Those things are deadly for our pawed friends. :(
Toads are cool if you see it before you accidentally step on it...bare footed.
My baby!!! I love toads! I hope you took time to rub her side? They love it and will lean to one side till you can get to it better!
It actually looks like that toad is smiling.
She certainly is big. Fascinating texture, and good of her to pose!
I've never seen one that large, but then again...they grow em bigger in Texas.
It's the little things . . . No wonder I like you . . .
He's huge! I'd run the other way.
♪♫ه° ·.A Natureza está sempre nos surpreendendo!!!Bom fim de semana com tudo de bom!Beijinhos.╰✿ه° ·.⏝
Now that is one gigantic toad! In all my years(that is quite a few years), I have never seen a toad frog that big.
holy cow! I've never seen a toad that big.
A beautiful creature. Frogs and other amphibians are important because they will be first to experience the dire consequences of global warming, so they serve as signposts for we humans to heed.
When I lived in Texas, my first dog found a Texas toad and was quite flummoxed by it!
Adorable little toad.
Oooooooh, you are tremendous Toad. I love you Toad, croak.
I totally agree with you.....adorable!
Beautiful toad. Or is it an enchanted prince?Greetings.
I have always loved toads! She looks like she has a big smile on her face! ;-)
She's a beautiful Texas Toad indeed. And huge! We had one almost that big once on our porch here, but it was very pale beige, no markings. I almost slammed her in the sliding glass door.... we used the other door the rest of the day, and it finally hopped away.
Hi. Quite a frog. It might be quite an experience when that should be received.
I love them too, TWG. Nothing more adorable than tiny toad toes!~
looks interesting but I am afraid it
Wow, what a beast!
So cute! Good shots! I greet! :)
Such amazing shots of a gigantic toad. Lovely that he stayed so still for you. Have a lovely weekend :)
I've heard the saying,everything bigger in Texas,but I didn't know that applied to toads as well. She is huge.
Great photos of the Toad. Here in Australia the toads are VERY poisonous! Definitely not something to get close to.
That`s a fat toad,ours in Pa are emerging too,thanks for sharing,phyllis
That is quite an impressive toad. One thing that has been sad to me is I don't see toads anymore. I think it is nice she had got to grow as big as she has.
How do you know the sex of a toad? (Don't tell me...) "She" doesn't seem a bit bothered by you.
Oh, the stories she could tell!
Gosh- that's a big one! The last toad I saw snuck in and went for a swim in Katie's water bowl.
Biggest Toad I've ever seen.
She IS beautiful!
I love toads, frogs, and every thing in nature. God made a beautiful planet.
You really got some wonderful shots of Madam Toad. I love how you got such a clear shot of her eye.
You got some great shots of this cute toad!
Pretty respectable size toad alright! I seem to recall that you posted another very large toad picture two or three years ago...
I am impressed, T. She is amazing. Thank you for sharing her. She is beautiful.
Wow - large, indeed! :)I like them, but especially the little rain frogs.xoxo
Large indeed! Nice pictures!
Amazing how close you got to her!
Lovely toad and its back look like walnut shell! Lol
You are unique in your appreciation of certain creatures. Good for you.Just noticed your visitor tracker add-on. It says I am in London, but I'm in Ottawa on the other side of the province, Go figure.
He is so cute!
Well, the way you talk about her makes me love her. We love our toads and tree frogs here too. We have a toad and a tree frog that call the front porch home!
Holy moley! Imagine the hurtin' she puts on the local bug population. Nice of her to drop by for a few photos.
Cute little gaffer! Hope he eats lots of mosquitos1
Amazing! I love toads also and always try to save them. Cool toad!Linda
He's huge! Wow. I love the expression on his face! :-)
Such a beautiful toad. She certainly is distinctive.
Love this! Toads seem to have a sort of shy grin on their cute little faces. What a nice visit you had. :)
Wow - she's huge! And does seem to have a rather sweet face (for a toad, LOL)
These are amazing!!!Thanks for stopping to pay a visit with us birders this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'. [I'm hoping for some more of your BBWDs soon!]
Holy moly, T...that's something you don't see every day!
Holy smokes! I've never seen one that large!
Hi Tex, That is one big toad! :-)
T, she's a beauty!
I love have toads around! I can't believe you are mowing. We are just turning warm enough for the grass to start growing.
Dearest Theresa,That is quite a sizable Texas toad you show us.Love its green specks on the body.Hugs,Mariette
I dont suppose that they are good looking - but they are great!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
She's big and stately!
Pretty big toad.
Nice pics. Have a great week..
he is HUGE. wow. that is awesome. i love your hand for scale. neat-O!! have a nice week, Theresa. so windy here and cold too. an interesting start to the spring days. so wild. ( :
Hi Tex, yea! I received an email for this blog post, I have signed up several times now wondering why I never receive anything. Beautiful toad, looks very healthy. I would be very curious to find out how old she really is.
What a grand toad, Theresa! I so wish they lived up here, I love toads, they are fun to play with too. That one looks really laid back.
Even toads are bigger in Texas! I've never seen one so big.
This makes me smile because it reminds me of a toad I had as a youngster. I called him Max and I kept him for an entire summer in a terrarium of sorts. I cried when I set hime free...both sad tears for me and happy tears for him :)
It's huge, Teresa and is very quiet ;)
You have so many things on your ranch, and kudos to you for keeping your eyes peeled for such finds like the toad and the snails! I would really love to know how old she is, too. That's a really cool find!
Dearest Theresa; Wow, that's sure is a big toad and different from I've seen when young. I remember hearing their cries and see them often close to the rice paddy. Haha, not that big one and not the type either.Thank you SO much for your comments,I really appreciate your visits♪ I think I'll be able to get back the normal life style :-)Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
How adorable, I love toads, frogs, Spring Peepers, all of them, very sweet~
I think she's a great great great Grandma! and cute too.
Wowzers! That baby is huge!
Oh wow, what a large toad! It is a Texas-sized toad for sure. :) I would love to know how old it is, too. Have a nice week!
I love the smiley one! And it looks just like the toads that sometimes come by here.
What a Great Visitor!!! Toads a cool.
What a wonderful creature! And yes, adorable definitely fits!!!
Hi Tex, What a great Toad! I like them as well. I have never spotted one or even any other frog here at my new home. Maybe some day I will. Glad your toad is on its way to another adventure. Have a great day tomorrow!
That's cool that you found a toad so big and she sat still long enough for you to get some great pictures of her.
This is certainly a different post, but interesting.
This is a very special animal.I find it very beautiful. The little green pieces of his body that pieces of grass or sit it in his skin?
Have a Blessed and Meaningful Easter.
Wow, he is huge ! Nice !
You are so brave, Theresa. I would dare go near a frog or a toad. Actually I cannot differentiate which is which. It looks like a big toad!
Oh my gosh! She's huge! And look at that cute smile in that center photo. :)
So sweet little frog with the freshly-mown grass... Adorable to meet such a critter...A good weekend to you and a Happy Spring!
Freshly mowed grass?? I haven't even thought about getting the mower out yet. Hopefully I'll have a few more weeks before I have to think about that.
I know so little about toads. But children have a particular fascination with them!
I love toads too! And frogs and geckos too!
