Apparently they'd been missing for 87 years. That's one elderly toad.

Toads should not have green. In order to avoid confusion, I would like to request that biologists use the word "frog" for green critters and "toad" for brown and gray critters.

Who knew they had Photoshop in 1924?

Taboo drone.
Robot anode.
Atoned boor.

We all thought it had croaked.

It's ugly - can't we hide it again for another 87 years?
2011-07-14 10:06:54 AM  
I guess that species wasn't ready to get in the cart

When they found it, did it sing "Hello, my baby?"

Did he have a sword & pistol by his side? If not, I call shenanigans.

Well I guess we can see that they may know their toads. How the internet works on the other hand...

What's the over/under on when it shows up at Kingsnake.com?
2011-07-14 11:17:29 AM  
Well if it wasn't so well camouflaged maybe it wouldn't keep getting lost.
2011-07-14 11:28:12 AM  
Scientists estimate it will be delicious.
