In this study, males SVL = 75.6–199 mm, females SVL = 108–150 mm. This species is characterized by the size. This is a toad of variable size between large and very large, having a large and prominent parotid gland, oval to subtriangular parotoid. Snout short, subacuminated in dorsal view, truncated to rounded in profile. Low cranial crests; canthal, preorbital, supraorbital, postorbital and supratympanic crests continuous, low and thick; less evi- dent labial and parietal crests. Dorsally, the skin is tuber- culate with medium and rounded tubers usually with a keratinized spicule at the tip. A total of 13 individuals were observed, these were found on the leaf litter or in open areas beside water bodies present between 250 and 1450 m (Stations 1, 3, 5). This species is found from the south of Texas ( USA) to the north of Peru, western and northern Colombia, west coast of Ecuador, and extreme northwestern Peru ( Frost 2019). In Colombia it occupies almost all the habitats of the lowlands of the Magdalena and Cauca rivers ( Acosta-Galvis 2019).
