When I lived in N.C. I had a toad just like that who lived in the water meter well. He came out every night and sat on my front porch where I kept the porch light on. He would sit on the porch even when my wife and I sat out. He became so tame that he would take moths right from my hand. I would catch one and hold it by the wing, and he would hop over and take it right from me. Really cool!
Thanks for bringing back the memories! Have fun with your toad.
