The presence of toads can be beneficial to humans and natural ecosystems, as they prey on many species of pest insects. In fact, cane toads, also known as bufo toads, were originally introduced to the country as part of an effort to control sugar cane pests.

Cane toads are very large amphibians, measuring about four to six inches in length. They are typically tan, reddish-brown, dark brown, or gray in color and have dark spots on their backs. Additionally, the pests have massive triangular shaped glands near their shoulders. Unlike other common species, cane toads do not have ridges or crests on their heads.
The large amphibians feed on a variety of pests, including beetles, centipedes, millipedes, cockroaches, scorpions, spiders, and crabs. Cane toads will also attack frog species, as well as small reptiles, birds, and mammals. To supplement their meat-heavy diet, these invasive toads will help themselves to pet food and water that’s been left outside.
Though the cane toad is now found in portions of North America, such as parts of Florida and Texas, they are native to Central and South America. However, these invasive pests are able to breed near vegetated edges of water, such as lakes, ponds, and ditches, which means that they are capable of surviving in a variety of habitats.
