Your Florida Backyard NSiS Home Page Your Florida Backyard Narrowmouth Toads
Narrowmouth toads (family Microhylidae) have smooth skin and spades on their hind feet for burrowing. Their diet consists primarily of ants.

The Eastern Narrowmouth Toad, Gastrophryne carolinensis, is found near temporary ponds statewide. Its rounded body is dark gray to black, its snout is pointed, and it has a skin fold across the back of its head. It may reach a length of 1.5". Its call sounds like a lamb bleating.
