Brief SummaryRead full entry
Bufo mauritanicus is found in many areas throughout northern Africa. Although genetic variation within the species is low (Harris et al., 2009), they can be found in a variety of colors. Coloration on their backs can range from dark patches of brown, olive, orange, or reddish brown to just a uniform sand color (Salvador, 1996). Bufo mauritanicus breeds in fresh to slightly salty water at different times of the year depending on its particular location. It eats mainly beetles, and females tend to be larger than males (Salvador, 1996).
