Cane Toad

Rhinella marina


Rhinella marina has a grey olive brown dorsal skin with many warts ending in dark brown caps. The ventral skin tends to be a whitish yellow with dark brown speckles or mottles and is granular. Rhinella marina possesses huge paratoid glands stretching from the anterior side of the tympanum to halfway down the back. A high bony ridge meets at the snout between the nostrils. Rhinella marina, like other nocturnal species, has horizontal pupils. Rhinella marina can reach a maximum length of 238 millimeters, although generally is approximately 150 to 175 millimeters. (Cogger, 1983)


Rhinella marina is a tropical species that prefers forested areas with semi-permanent water nearby (Cogger 1983).


It was 12nn, i was examining a guava tree hoping to find some insect that could be resting on the leaves or on the trunk, when i saw a hole under the trunk of the tree. I turn on my flashlight and saw this Cane toad resting/hiding inside. I only took one shot of photo cause i don't want to bother its beauty rest. I really love how its body color blends in on the inside of a guava tree trunk, a very well camouflage.
