Looks like a toad to me. Smiling

Could it be this one, the Great Basin Spadefoot? It is found in BC, and its vertical pupils are apparently uncommon, and the ID toad has them. It was the only one with two pale lines down the back in a web page listing BC frogs and toads:

How beautiful. I agree, Philip, to have resident frogs & toads IS lucky. I can hear the toads in the pond each evening. Very low, soft ribbitttttttttt. (That's probably sweet nothings to Mrs toad)
