Schismaderma Carens toad venom
The African red toad is a fairly large species with adults reaching about 90 millimeters (3.5 in) in snout-to-vent length, females being slightly larger than males. The upper surface is reddish-brown with a pair of dark brown spots on the shoulders and another pair on the lower back. There is a dorsolateral ridge with glands running from the tympanum to the back leg, and the outer part of this ridge is darker on its lower edge. The flanks in some individuals are dark and in others palehttps://skyvapharmaceuticals.com/
(Phrynomantis bifasciatus) is described as a medium (45 – 66 mm) walking and climbing frog found in the southern parts of Africa including the bushveld, savanna and subtropical or tropical shrubland and grassland areas of South Africa.
These frogs have a smooth glossy rubbery skins with dark gray to black bodies and a light greyish underside. Also known by some lay people as the Red rubber banded frog, they have two distinctive reddish stripes running front to back over the back, large reddish sport on the arms and legs and a large spot on the rump.
Banded Rubber frogs are one of the few species in South Africa that carries a potent toxin on its skin. The poison works locally by irritating the skin and mucous membranes and systemically by probably affecting the heart muscle.
Being non-jumping frogs, Banded Rubber frogs actually make good pets. The frog in this photo was one of my weird and wonderful pets kept while I was in varsity. I had her for several years before she miraculously disappeared from her tank.
