In the east Woodhouse's Toad could be confused with the American Toad, but the belly of Woodhouse's Toad is usually without dark spots. Males have throats that are darker than the rest of the belly. Like most toads, they are most active at night and will be able to be found in the evenings towards the end of sunset. Often times you can find them around buildings foraging under lights that attract insects. They frequent a great variety of habitats, but seem to prefer sandy areas.
Their call is an explosive and nasal "w-a-a-a-a", lasting from 1-3 1/2 seconds.
