  1. southern spadefoot

    The Southern Spadefoot is a species of frog from the Scaphiopodidae family that is commonly found in the southern part of North America. These frogs are named so because of a unique, spade-like projection on their hind legs which they use to dig into the soil. They are usually characterized by their round bodies, large eyes, and smooth skin. They are nocturnal and spend most of the day hidden underground, surfacing often in the rain or on wet nights.
