European Green Toad (Bufo viridis)

I found this dead European Green Toad in the alley behind our school where there is some new construction. I am not sure how it died, probably run over by a car. Once again, I am not into road kill, but it is a good way of surveying wildlife in an area and I never would have known that this beautiful frog species was near our school. They would make a great pet because they are quite slow moving and have such striking colors. I identified it by the bright green spots as well as small reddish spots on the side of its body. This specimen was quite small. I would like to catch a live toad.
