Unlike other toads which have horizontal pupils, spadefoot toads have vertical pupils. On the underside of the hindfoot is a hard, dark “spade” that gives spadefoot toads their name. These creatures can grow to be 3.5″ in length.
These “spades” are used by the toads to burrow into the ground to prevent water loss and hide from predators. There are two spadefoot species in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and California. Couch’s spadefoot toad (Scaphiopus couchi) has a sickle-shaped “spade”, whereas the western spadefoot toad (Spea hammondii) has a rounded “spade”. Spadefoots are not true toads and should therefore simply be called spadefoots.
