Sounds of North American Frogs - Warning Croak Accompanied By Warning Vibration Of The Southern Toad

Just a heads up for you: if you ever need to know what North American frogs and toads sound like, you won't do better than the album The Biological Significance Of Voice In Frogs, as narrated by Charles M. Bogert. It was released by Smithsonian Folkways in 1958, and Bogert has the voice to match. Whether you approach it as a primary source of scientific data, kitsch sound art, or a previously untapped source of audio samples1 is entirely up to you. Personally I adore the acid squelchiness of these noises made by the Southern toad (bufo terrestris).
