SCARY SURPRISE THURSDAY!!

HALLOWEEN WEEK!
SCARY SURPRISE THURSDAY!

This Scary Surprise Thursday takes us Central America to meet an usually large amphibian! These big guys have a very yucky defensive system! Put on your wellies on and let’s in to the wetlands!

MEET THE MARINE TOAD!

   Range/Habitat: Central-South America/ wetlands, rivers, lakes

   Diet: Carnivore: ants, beetles, invertebrates

   Length: 4-6”

  Conservation Status: common

Fun Facts:

  • Marine toads are also known as cane toads.
  • Marine toads are world’s largest toads.
  • They have a tough warty skin.
  • Marine toads are nocturnal (active at night).
  • They are very hardy and can survive in many different habitats.
  • Marine toads have large glands that secret a very toxic poison.

Marine toads are big bad dudes! They will eat almost anything too! We do think it’s best if we just let them hang out by themselves, you know with their toxic skin and all!
