pictures of unknown toad species

Post by FatToad » August 21st, 2010, 10:00 am

I was unsure where to post this, so please excuse me, and direct me to the correct place.

My husband was doing yard work and came across a strange looking toad in a wood pile. He says it looks like a Korean/Asian firebelly toad? I have no idea, but I need to find out what it is. I dont want to release it back into the wild until I know for sure. There have been some reports that an unknown person had been breeding exotic species of fish, spiders, frogs and toads and releasing them into the wild.

This toad looks unlike anything I have every seen. It is HUGE, and had spiney horns all over, ridges over its eyes and orange splotching.

If anyone can help me, I will post the pictures where it is permitted on this site.

I will be watching this post for any replies, and thanks for taking the time to read this!

You'd likely get good responses if you post this over in the main forum.

Any photos would be helpful. It would also be helpful to know where it was found (city/region).

A title along the lines of "ID help needed for exotic toad" would get the attention of the folks most able to help you.

The more photos the better, especially from varying angles.

Posting photos here can get tricky. You'll need to upload them to a photo host (such as photobucket or flicker) then post the link with "img" tags. Let us know if you need help posting them.
