The common Toad

Amplexus crapaud

Description

Kissing a toad transforming it into a charming prince is a myth! You must not touch this protected species, which is sensitive to diseases that humans could transmit.But you can look it in the eyes to observe its horizontal pupil and its orange iris. You will also notice its parotid glands on the back of its head. They are used to secrete a venom, the "bufotoxin" intended to keep away any possible predator.The toads and frogs are not the same species; toads live mostly in the forest, out of the water, joining it only during the breeding season !
