Ah, the American Toad (Anaxyrus americanus), a symbol of beauty the world over. Known for its gorgeous eyes and killer curves (mostly found on the warts covering its lumpy, dry skin), the toad is one of North America's most plentiful amphibians. And those curves really can be deadly, depending on who you are. The parotoid glands on the back of a toad's head (and other warts, in general) can secrete a milky poison when the little one feels threatened. This secretion has differing effects. If you're an actual predator, it could kill you. If you're a human, it will mostly likely not affect you at all, unless you rub your eyes after holding one ... they might itch or become irritated. One thing is for certain: you won't get warts.
