JUN 16, amphibians: American toad

Authors' Note:    In the Canadian province of Ontario we have only two species of toad, apparently -- the American toad, Anaxyrus americanus, and the closely related Fowler's toad. There are also some 10 species of 'true' frog.

  The author had initially given excessive credence to the differentiating rule that states, "if something hops, it's a toad, but if it leaps, it's a frog." The creature in question was apparently under great pressure to reach the Great Lakes beach.
