Cane Toad: The World's Biggest Toad

Leon Gray (author)

Publisher: Bearport Publishing ISBN: 9781617727771

The cane toad is so big that it can grow to be the size of a soccer ball! To satisfy its huge appetite, it pounces on and devours almost anything that moves--and that will fit into its mouth. The cane toad is more than just a voracious eater, however; it's also dangerous. It can release deadly venom through its dry, warty skin that is strong enough to poison pets, people, and even a 10-foot-long (3-m) crocodile! In Cane Toad: The World's Biggest Toad, eye-popping color photos paired with simple, grade-appropriate text will engage children as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this supersized animal. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.
