Frequently seen in the evenings around human habitations

The so-called marine toad (sapo grande; Bufo marinus) is actually found both on the coast and inland up to a height of 2000m. Frequently seen in the evenings around human habitations in rural areas, its size makes it unmistakable. It is the largest Neotropicallowland toad and specimens reaching 20cm long and weighing up to 1.2kg have been recorded - that's one big toad!
