A Rococo in her Native Brazil

Here are some fun photos of a Rococo toad (bufo paracnemis) found in Brazil. The toad was sitting on the porch of Andrew Haucke of Monte Alto, Brasil in February of 2008. The weather was hot and this toad found shade and cooling on the tiles under the overhang on the porch. He reports seeing many smaller toads and frogs, but never one this big.

Rococos are native to Central and South America, just as Cane toads are (bufo marinus).

Thank you Andrew for these wonderful photos!
