Cane Toad (Bufo marinus)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Back in September, I posted a photo of a Cane Toad (Bufo marinus) that lives in our garden. In that post I said:
These amphibians come out after dark in search of food and water. Normally they eat things like insects, snails and slugs -- but we have witnessed several Cane Toads gobbling cat food from a bowl that happened to be left out on the porch overnight.Today I offer proof of the toad's penchant for cat food. We caught this guy on the back porch, just as he was about to indulge his secret craving.
