Default Enough about snakes...how about toads?!?

So yesterday my dog was barking like crazy outside and I had to investigate. The photo below is what she had cornered and I had never seen anything like it before...I have seen bullfrogs and toads back in SC, but I jumped back and initially thought I saw a snake curled up. I took this photo:



FYI, that is a cinder block below the toad.

Well, I went inside to look it up and found out it was a Marine Toad...the largest toad in North America and also poisonous- especially to pets who get aggressive with it. They have a gland that excretes a fluid that can eventually kill any dog or cat. I went back outside and it had disappeared.

Well...today, we crossed paths again and I won the battle.



FYI, the Florida Wildlife Conservation website had (what seemed like) the strangest method to euthanize them: rub benzocaine ointment on their back and eventually they will die. THEN...put them in your freezer for 3 days. Well, that wouldn't fly with my lady...so a shovel to the dome and a plastic bag did the job.

I think it is. Not 100% sure, but I think this is the toad that kids were licking and having bad trips.

The toad licking think has been around for a while now. I can remember seeing a 60 minutes or something on it as a kid. Never tried it because I hate frogs and toads. I know that might sound strange for a guy that keeps all kinds of exotic pets.

If you trust Wikipedia, you're right. Those toads' toxin can cause hallucinations...although it also said there have been documented deaths for ingesting the toxin.

There have been documented deaths from most toxins in the world.
