When my wife was reading to the kids tonight (from Ranger Rick, Jr.), she read, “A cane toad can be as big as a small dog.”
My response, from the other room was: “Gross!”
My six-year-old promptly corrected me: “No… that’s awesome!”
I suppose he’s right. The photo above is of a cane toad, which I have not had the privilege of seeing in person. (They’re not around these here parts.)
National Geographic has more here.
