photographing and learning about wildlife
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.
These invasive toads are almost everywhere, especially at wet season. I usually find them at night
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.
