The Cuban spotted toad or Cuban Caribbean toad (Peltophryne taladai) is a species of toad in the family Bufonidae. It is endemic to central and eastern Cuba.[2] Its natural habitats are lowland mesic broadleaf forests, but it also occurs on cultivated fields as long as they are not too intensively farmed. It is common in suitable habitat but its distribution is severely fragmented and its habitat is threatened by intensive agriculture, charcoaling, and nickel mining.[1]
