Orleans Parish, Louisiana, US
This plant was growing in some uncared for grass. It is possible it escaped from a domesticated garden, but it clearly was not intentionally planted in its current location.
Given the body, this looks like an arachnid to me. However, the number of legs is off. Perhaps it lost its legs to a predator though.
I think this looks like an "American Toad," but some range maps I looked at do not show American Toads being as far as New Orleans.
This observation was made after rain and in the dark. T Thoughts?
