Toad at Mara River, Kenya
Bufo maculatus
Mara River Camp
July 17, 2000
This was a pretty generic looking toad, perhaps 4 inches long. It was hopping about the camp near the dining area. I don't have any references that display or even just list toads in Africa, so I have no guesses about the identify of this toad.

The Mara River Camp is on the Mara River, just a few miles from Masai Mara Game Reserve.

In 2006, a guide to Amphibians of East Africa by Alan Channing and Kim M. Howell was published. I used this guide to identify this toad as Bufo maculatus.

Please send me mail if you have any further information about this toad.
