Rococo Toad


The rococo toad is a large South American species of toad that looks a lot like a marine toad.

The rococo toad is less well known and less wide spread than the marine toad. It is sometimes hard to tell the two species apart — I certainly have problem distinguishing them — the main difference is supposed to be that the rococo toad has poison glands on its hind legs in addition to the ones the sides of its neck that all toads tend to have.

People do keep rococo toads as pets, their care is similar to marine toads.
