I caught a bout a dozen of the these guys in one of my fish culture ponds that is filled late in season. Every time we fill ponds in July we get Narrow Mouthed Toads calling. This is first time I actually captured the tadpoles and man they are weird and very poor swimmers. I am trying to find out if they are Eastern or Western Narrow Mouthed toads. Check out how little median fold they have on upper and lower margins of tail.
Dorsal aspect. Nearly black from above.
Ventral aspect. Check patterns.
Lateral aspect. Stripes well developed on tail. Beak already showing.
