Toad in Rock

Toad in Rock

Fort Creve Coeur Park, Creve Coeur, Illinois

This toad has wedged itself between two layers of diamicton, a friable rock-like outcropping just below a small glacial drift hill prairie high above the Illinois River. Animals frequently excavate small caves in the crumbly material.
