Abstract

Cane toad (Rhinella marina) toxicity in a wedge-tailed eagle (Aquila audax) following ingestion and regurgitation of a wild toad caused emesis, ptyalism, lethargy, ataxia, bradyarrythmia and collapse. Decontamination and supportive care led to recovery over 48 hours without long term sequelae.
