Giant Toad
Bufo marinus
The Giant Toad (Rhinella marinus) is also known as Cane Toad, Marine Toad, and Giant Neotropical Toad. This large toad occurs from parts of South America northward to extreme southern Texas. The first 5 shots on this page were taken along a woodland trail at Santa Ana N.W.R., Hidalgo Co., Texas, in October, 2009, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and an EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 580 flash. The individual in the top 5 shots shown here was approximately 8 inches in length, but some can reach up to 15 inches I have read.
