I saw a large yellow toad #138014

Asked July 01, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

I was walking through the Denver Cherry Creek neighborhood and saw this toad in a garden.  It was quite large, the body was probably larger than my fist.  It is a very bright yellow with some unique brown markings.  Wondering what this is, I can't find a picture of anythiung similar on the web?

If it was that large, it is probably a bullfrog, which is a species not native to Colorado.  For more information, contact the Colorado Herpetological Society: http://www.coloherps.org/index.html
