    This is the responce I got today:

    "Hi Niki -
    Your froglet appears to be a toad, although it is nearly impossible to tell the
    species apart at that age. They are most likely Southern Toads -- a native species
    -- but could possibly be Cane Toads. Since Cane Toads are toxic to dogs, I would
    suggest that you visit the USGS frog call lookup website and listen to the calls
    of the Southern Toad and Cane Toad. If you have heard one of them calling from your
    pond recently, the little toads are likely that species. Southern Toads sound a
    bit like a cross between a hum and whistle, while Cane Toad calls are more of a
    trill (sounds a bit like an owl). Sorry I couldn't be more help - feel free to email me photos of larger toads if you encounter them."


    I have never seen any of those toads in my yard, or ever since I moved to Florida, so I really don't think it's either of those. I even told her that these little guys don't get much bigger than they are now. Oh well. I guess I'll never know

    I dont think it would be a cane toad, they are way to small to be cane toads, even at that age. I would agree with the others saying cricket frogs, but i may be wrong. If you can find any eggs that would be a help, though its proably to late for that.

    Yeah too late for that, lol. Oh well, she got back to me yesterday and told me how to raise one. So I went and caught one and we'll see what it turns into. It is a toad for sure though, not a frog. She said they stay small for a loooong time, so we'll see. I'll take pics occasionally to show how it's growing.

    Well if it is a toad then it could be an oak toad

    http://www.uga.edu/srelherp/anurans/bufque.htm

    They stay small and live in your area (florida right)

    I still say from that pic it looks like a cricket frog

    a pic of an adult would help

    regardless, good luck with keeping it, amphibians are always fun

    Hmmm, they look a lot like both the Oak Toad AND the Cricket Frog. It'll be interesting to see which one it is.

    Just went outside and saw a ton of new eggs in my pond. These are different than the ones I've seen before (I have Leopard and Bull frogs, but I don't know which one lays what kind of eggs) These are kind of in a single line, the others I've seen were in a ball. Maybe these are the little toads? I emailed the frog lady again, so maybe we'll figure something out, but I doubt it since it's so hard to tell what they are.



    These leaves were in the water, I just pulled it out while I took the pic.



    Edit: Nevermind. I'm pretty sure these are the Bull Frog eggs. I just noticed they're black and white...I didn't see that earlier.

    When I first saw it I thought it looked like a spadefoot toad, but I don't know much about frogs.


    If it turns out to be a cricket frog, you should get your camera and film yourself stepping on every one you see. Then send the video to the state wildlife division.

    I bet they would be so happy that they would give you a free trip back to Cananda.
