giant toad in my yard!
I was sitting in my office when I saw movement outside of the window. At first I thought maybe it was a baby rabbit but upon further investigatin it was this guy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cane_Toad It hissed a few times at me and chased me a bit before I finally got a picture of it.

Are you sure that's a toad. It looks really weird.

He's kind of hunkered down, he was scared of ME! His head is tucked in up by my toes.

Yeah, some brainiac thought it would be a good idea to introduce them into the sugar cane fields of South Florida like they did in Australia. Problem is, it failed in Australia and here, they have such a huge appetite that they eat all the natives in their path and whorf down all the food for those that they don't eat. Toadzilla!
He hissed a few more times and hopped under the fence into my neighbor's yard.
