FIU: Florida pet owners warned about deadly giant toads

Florida’s rainy season is in full force and pet owners are being cautioned to keep an eye out for toxic toads that can potentially kill dogs and cats.

“The wet season means increased activity of all amphibians,” said Maureen Donnelly, associate dean of the College of Arts & Sciences and professor of biological sciences. “Cane toads are exotic pests that thrive in disturbed environments including river floodplains, tree fall gaps, urban environments and other environments disturbed by humans.”
