The color of Anaxyrus baxteri is dark brown, gray, or greenish with small dark blotches and an indiscernible median line on the dorsal surface. Some have light lateral stripes. The underbelly is spotted and the males tend to have a dark throat. Cranial crest is fused. Adult females grow slightly larger than males. The dorsal-surface of the body has rounded warts smaller than A. cognatus but larger than A. boreas. Cutting tubercles on the hind foot are well developed in adults (Baxter 1980).

Previously considered a subspecies of the Canadian Toad, Anaxyrus hemiophrys.
