Cane Toad

Rhinella marina

Description:

This photographed toad is around 3 inches. The cane toad was first introduced deliberately into the Philippines in 1930 as a biological control agent of pests in sugarcane plantations, after the success of the experimental introductions into Puerto Rico. It subsequently became the most ubiquitous amphibian in the islands.

Habitat:

These invasive toads are almost everywhere, especially at wet season. I usually find them at night

Notes:

These toads have a venom-secreting poison glands (known as parotoid glands) behind each of their eyes. These toads are dangerous around pets especially dogs. Even the tadpole is toxic.
