Marais Temps Clair Conservation Area

We went to Marais Temps Clair conservation area in hopes of seeing a lot of reptiles on the levees in the early morning.  We didn't get there early and it was blazing hot and humid that day, so didn't see much.
We did find a Fowler's Toad, which Tullaia identified without a guide.
Isn't he a sweetie?

Fowler's Toad

The marsh is an old oxbow of the Missouri River and the streams were filled with large groups of long nosed fish.  We all thought muskie, but after reading more I don't think they live there.
