B.U.F.O.!?

Check it out, i found this frog the other day. In Arizona. All the descriptions seem to match it as a bufo toad. What do you think??

Amazingly enough that looks like a bufo alvarus. You are in Arizona and thus possibly in some part of the Sonoran desert. I have tried to smoke bufotenin from a bufo americanus, and this did not kill me- so rest assured. I heard it from a man that someone just like you should let loose the juice and sample a pile of the stuff (ina pipe- don't eat it- if it's bufotenin it might just kill you). I might be wrong about the ID but I'd imagine, you know?

Oh- and before I get smacked around about the issue- yes I am aware that the excretions from bufo toads are mixtures of many chemicals including adrenal toxins. They are apparently destroyed (or deminished) with heat, whereas bufotenin is not.... I think.

Definately not a Bufo alvarius ..... looks to be some relative of Bufo americanus.....maybe a Bufo bufo ......


Cool find, nonetheless :laugh:
