If that's a cane toad, they excrete poison from glands near their eyes - be careful.

The large bumps behind the eyes are poison glands

Hey, I have the same POS casio watch!

Just be thankful it isn't a Bufo Toad. Those bastards are all over florida and emit a poisonous slime when they are threatened. It isn't really harmful to humans, but dogs get one hell of a nightmarish trip and really sick.

Cane toads can grow to be the size of a small cat or a chihuahua! We used to have a toad/frog problem at my aunt's house in florida. There would always be dead frogs in the damn pool.

They would be fun to shoot, I think.

(I mean while they were alive, and not in the pool yet Shooting them in the pool could get 'spensive)

Toads are self-powered bug zappers.

Damn! We don't get those here.

My wife's friend did teach my dachshund to bump toads though, the ones that appear on the front porch during the summer. They don't seem to want to play with Max, so he uses his paw to bump the in the ass and make them hop so he can chase them.

Hmmm.... toads of all kinds were tormented by me for years as a child and I can't ever remember any ill effects. What level of danger does it really pose?


ETA: Never mind... these aren't the toads we get around here:


It is imperative that people become aware of the potential hazard
of coming into contact with toads. Dogs and cats may die after
mouthing Cane Toads. Symptoms include profuse salivation,
twitching, vomiting, shallow breathing and collapse of the hind limbs.
The eggs and tadpoles are also poisonous and can cause cardiac
arrest and death.
Under stress, Cane Toads secrete poison onto the surface of their
skin. If physically bashed or squeezed, this poison may shoot a
short distance. Occasionally, when people attempt to kill a Cane
Toad, poison enters the eyes or mouth. Because the poison can be
absorbed into the system through mucous membranes without being
swallowed, the mouth, eyes and nose should always be thoroughly
washed if such contact with toad poison occurs.

It's an olds wives tail that if you hear a toad by your back door a big change is comming in your life.

Live Frogs and Toads are a shitload of fun to shoot. We used to wade along the riverbank with a flashlight and a 22 pistol at night. Lots of shooting.

Every Spring / Summer we have the same problem with them coming to the glass door in back and hoping in the garage anytime it is left open for more than a few minutes.

The funny thing is, sometimes when I am bored, I would carry them 200 or 300 feet out into the field and they would start hoping back and make it eventually.

Oh, another thing is, I have the same watch also.

Toads are attracted to lighted areas at night. When I was a kid we would sit out in the machine shed with the light on at night and dozens of toads would stop by to say hi.

I like toads. They are good-natured, eat bugs by the bushel, and can survive almost any conditions on earth, other than freezing cold.

BTW... while some are poisonous they don't give you warts. Please tell me no one actually believes that old wives' tale.

Also, the liquid they deposit in your hand when you catch one is not piss, it is plain old water. They do it to confuse predators.

Good Toad... Good Toad....

I always thought toads were a good luck sorta critter.
Link Posted: 1/17/2006 4:40:00 PM EDT
btw... Bufo is the genus toads belong to... I'm not sure if it is the name of a particular species.

Most toads are harmless unless you are dumb enough to try to eat one!

He is very environmentally friendly. Please, for the children, don't hurt the toad.

i love those things, they decimate the insect population. one time i found not a toad but a salamander in my basement, and at the same time i noticed the place was almost completely devoid of insect and spiders (it's usually crawling with them). i let the thing stay there because it was really doing a good job keeping the place bug-free.
