Marine Toad

KC Zoo frog


The marine toad is a large amphibian weighing up to five pounds! These natives of Central and South America can and will eat anything in they can fit in their mouths and as such can be a damaging introduced species. They are also toxic, producing a venom in glands behind their eyes. You can find our marine toads in the Discovery Barn.
