Yosemite Toad on the Road

Detailed Description

A rare Yosemite toad (Anaxyrus canorus) rests in the middle of a forest road. USGS scientists are helping the U.S. Forest Service and Caltrans determine whether providing wooden bridges for vehicles to drive over will protect toads and other amphibians from vehicle strikes.
