In contrast to yesterday's tiny frog - a big toad. This is of course Bufo marinus, the Cane Toad. Its native to central and south america but this photo was taken in St. Kitts one of many places where this voracious little monster has been released. I'm sure many of you are aware of its devastating spread through Australia and Hawaii. It doesn't seem to do so much damage here.
It certainly wasn't worried by me though and soon puffed itself up to tell me to do one. I naturally found this hilarious but respected its wishes nonetheless after a shot of the inflated toad.
I can't look at these guys without thinking of Carl Hiasen's character skink who appears at one point high as a kite on smoked cane toad...but seriously kids say no to toad - bufotoxins aren't cool.
