First toad of the year!
Ick Factor: Frog Looking for Bugs Gets Bat Instead; Both Live to Regret It
We humans know all too well how annoying and gross it is when a bug flies into one’s mouth.
This cane toad in Peru, which was probably actually hoping for an insect, got something else entirely: a bat.
This is the position they assume when I rub their heads. It’s probably a defensive position since they puff up their bodies when they do it. It’s quite cute and most of the regulars know I mean no harm. I usually only move them out of the way of traffic - in our case, the dogs going in and out of the house.
