Description:
Length in Kansas up to 1.6 inches. A flat-bodied squat frog, with a sharply pointed snout and fold of skin across the back of its head and behind its eyes. They are often uniformly gray, tan, or olive on top, with occasional small black spots on the back or legs. The bellies are lighter colored and typically unspotted. The toes are not webbed.
Adults normally 22-38 mm (7/8-1½ inches) in SVL; largest Kansas specimen: female (FHSM 9099) from Lincoln County with a total length of 43 mm (1 11/16 inches) collected by Curtis J. Schmidt and Richard Hayes on 13 July 2004; exceeds maximum length throughout the range, as reported in Conant and Collins (1998).

Distribution:
Known primarily from the eastern three-fourths of the state, apparently avoiding much of the Western Plains. The record for Hamilton County (UIMNH 62332, from 1955) is in need of corroboration, although it is somewhat corroborated by specimens just to the west into Colorado. Specimens from the vicinity of the Cimarron River in southeastern Colorado (Hammerson, 1999) indicate that this species may be more widespread in southwest Kansas than currently known.

Natural History:
Terrestrial, nocturnal, and secretive, but get together in flooded areas following late spring and summer rains to mate. Their call sounds like the metallic bleat of a sheep and lasts 1-5 seconds.
Where they co-occur in south-central Kansas (Montgomery/Wilson counties west to Clark County), with Texas Brown Tarantulas (Aphonopelma hentzi), these two seemingly unlikely associates are often found together under large rocks.

Occurrence Activity:
The blue dates denote chorusing actity. The red dates are other occurrences. The darker a date is, the greater the relative number of observations for that date.
Chorusing:

Audio recording by Keith Coleman.

Chorusing Phenology: The black outlined dots denote the Julian date (day of the year; 1 January = 1 to 31 December = 365) an observation was made. The thin red line depicts the range of dates between the beginning of the first, and end of the fourth quartile (excluding outliers; Tukey method). The thick light blue bar represents the second and third quartile (interquartile range; the middle 50% of all observations). Only one observation per Julian date is included in the graphs; so a date with multiple observations carries the same weight as a date with only one observation. The vertical bars correspond to the 12 months of the year; January through December.
# Unique Obervations: 94; Range: 07 Apr to 31 Jul; Interquartile range: 02 Jun to 30 Jun;

Observation Type: (of recorded types)
Remarks:
First reported from Kansas in the original description by American herpetologist and physician Edward Hallowell in 1856. The type locality was taken from the title as "Kansas and Nebraska". The specimen the description was based on was collected by William A. Hammond, a military physician stationed at Fort Riley (Geary/Riley County). The earliest extant specimen currently known, is KU 9904 from 1915.
The Western Narrow-mouthed Toad is most easily observed while it is chorusing during late spring and into summer. Over most of its range in Kansas, its bleating call is easily distinguished from other frogs.
Compared to most other species of frogs in the state, specimens can often readily be found hiding under rocks on rangeland slopes during the Spring and to a lesser extent in the Fall.
