Toads from the Rhinella genus have granular glands that produce highly venomous secretion. It is rapidly absorbed after contact with oral mucosa or the digestive tract of the predator, causing poisoning. Clinical signs can vary from just hypersalivation to death by cardiac collapse. Most...

Accidents involving toad poisoning are frequent and dogs are the most common victims; they become poisoned by biting or ingesting a toad.
