Join The Debate

Contender 1: Cane Toad

The Cane Toad, also known as the Bufo marinus, is a large, terrestrial amphibian that can grow up to 9 inches in length. They have dry, warty skin that is typically brown or gray in color, with a creamy underbelly. Cane Toads are known for their distinctive parotoid glands located behind their eyes, which secrete a toxic substance that can be harmful to predators. They are native to Central and South America but have been introduced to other parts of the world, including Australia, where they are considered an invasive species.

Fun Fact: Cane Toads were introduced to Australia in the 1930s in an attempt to control the population of beetles that were damaging sugar cane crops, but the plan backfired as the toads had no natural predators and began to spread rapidly, causing harm to native wildlife.

Contender 2: Glass Frog

The Glass Frog, also known as the "see-through frog," is a unique amphibian found in Central and South America. These frogs are known for their translucent skin, which allows you to see their internal organs through their abdomen. Despite their fragile appearance, Glass Frogs are excellent jumpers and climbers. They have green skin on their back, creating excellent camouflage in their jungle habitat.

Fun Fact: One fascinating fact about Glass Frogs is that only the males are responsible for guarding the eggs after they are laid, resting on the underside of leaves to protect them from predators and keep them moist until they hatch.
