Subterranean Toads of the Sonoran Desert

 

Poisonous- and not so poisonous- toads visit Bone Haus this Tuesday, to kick off your Halloween season. 

Most of the year, Sonoran Desert toads lie dormant in slimy sacs under the desert floor like something out of the movie Alien… just waiting for the monsoon rains to trigger their emergence out of the mud. One of these toads contains a poison toxic enough to kill a dog. Ranger Amy shows you what to look out for, and what to do if your pet encounters one, in this closer look at the bizarre life of Desert toads.
