Animal of the day – 12/16/2010 – The Cane Toad

Cane Toad

The animal of the day is the Cane Toad. (Did you know: Either take your socks off now, or wait for them to be blown off shortly.

There’s this thing called Davian Behavoir, and it’s basically when animals do weird shit with dead bodies. Well, the Cane Toad likes to bone dead stuff. And not just other dead female toads! They’ll bone dead snakes, dead small mammals…basically if he can fit it in, he’s putting it in there.

There’s even a record of a cane toad copulating with a cane toad that had been run over by a car, and was flattened. Oh, not a big deal? He copulated with it for 8 hours.

And now for your viewing pleasure:

Also, the cane toad is an invasive species from the South Americas that is screwing Australia over right now [pun intended].
