Nice spotting Daniela, I think they belong to the Odontophrynus americanus which we have in our region. Greetings.

Hi Jellis, these are not captive toads. Toads are very common in our gardens and backyards. I took these picture in my backyard, I think one of this could be Rhinella arenarum, but the other looks different to Rhinella. I have another two spotting of toads, you can check it here:

Are these captive toads? It looks like two different species and you have the location inside a building. The location and if they are captive make it a little harder to identify if they are not native. Please post a note if these are captive.
