Toads can live almost everywhere, ranging from forests to backyards. They adapt very well to their surroundings, as long as there is a source of water for them to use in the breeding season. Toads have a pair of parotoid glands on the back of their heads. These glands and the skin in general, contain a poison which the toad excretes if feeling stressed or threatened. The poison has different effects on different animals, some find it irritating to eyes and mouth, while it may be fatal to others. Sometimes the poisons can cause hallucinations if ingested. We learned that from The Simpsons.
