Mexican Burrowing Toad (Rhinophrynus dorsalis)

…the sole member of the family Rhinophrynidae, the Mexican burrowing toad is a species of frog that occurs from south Texas through Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to Nicaragua and Costa Rica. As evidenced by its common name R. dorsalis is fossorial in nature (adapted for digging), spending most of its time underground. After long periods of rain it will emerge from the soil and attempt to lay eggs in a suitable water source. Mexican burrowing toads are primarily insectivorous, feeding mainly on ants, termites, and other insects.
