Found this toad in South Central Arizona, near the Pajarita Wilderness / Mexican border in July. I know I'm missing something but can't find a match in the field guides I usually use. Any help out there?

Looks good to me. Never considered a baby sonoran. Confirmed with field I'd page. Thanks.

Yeah, the smaller ones don't have those massive parotoid glands etc. The eye and glands, however, immediately put you in the Bufonidae, with not too many other options in that area.
