Recently the toad from this video has been identified as an American Toad inside this post in Reddit. The original video mentions it was filmed in White Clay Creek State Park, Newark, Delaware, USA.

This is the toad

Calculating the water's wavelength based on the sound yielded a value of 0.5mm. Using the image's ratios, the toad's length can be estimated. The result was 7mm. Yes, a toad being 7mm long.

The purpose of this question is to ask both if it effectively is a species of American Toad and if it's plausible for it to be 7mm long.


  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology.SE! Identifications questions should include: 1) one or more clear closeup photos of the organism (photos from multiple angles if possible) — photos must be uploaded (not links) — e.g. post stills captured from the video; 2) habitat information. Please edit your post to include this essential information. ——— Please also take the tour and then go through the help center pages starting with How to Ask questions effectively on this site.
