Description

I found this Asian Common Toad (unfortunately!) in Toamasina, Madagascar where it should NOT be. This species invaded Madagascar a few years ago and there are now approximately 4 million toads in the wild, and they continue to spread. The original toads are thought to have been accidentally imported inside ocean shipping containers moving cargo from Southeast Asia. This is why biosecurity to stop the spread of invasive species is so important! It's also possible that these toads introduced chytrid and ranavirus (see here: http://bit.ly/2bBvQja). A news report about this toad invasion was just posted if you'd like to know more: http://ensia.com/features/can-madagascar-get-rid-of-this-troubling-toad-before-its-too-late/
