    This is a great educational video.  The woman is very cheerful about her toad named Dharma.

      a wad of tissue in what was obviously raccoon vomit.  It was the skin of a toad.  That must have been one messed up coon.  Some have speculated that the food washing habit of raccoons evolved as a way to deal with the toxic skin secretions of frogs.

      moderation in everything ... including moderation

        toads alone pretty much.  They will eat frogs eagerly, but stay away from toads, at least after the first encounter.

        The Cane Toads in Australia have so much toxin that they kill almost anything that even mouths them.  I suspect it is the cardiac active materials responsible for that.

        Warmest regards,


        Time for real health care reform, not just to patch the patches.
