Bah, too big those frogs, but they have such a beauty skin. It's something for a jigsaw (is that a good word?)

So great this shot, tante.

It's a big toad indeed, with size range to 8-10cm. During this rainy season, invasion of this toad in our garden has had also a massive impact to most unwanted guest -- snakes (Cobra species). They slithered on into our neighborhood, even last month, two cats died right in our front door due to snake's bite. I've never been to afraid of snakes, but little worry for snake's bite on our pets.

Btw, you're right Tante, this can be fun for Jigsaws puzzle :D

HE (the toad) FELL IN SLEEP!

I've too many snakes Nona, but now I'm used to it, also Cobra's. Indeed my only worry is my dog! He already killed 2 snakes (no Cobra), I was so afraid for my dog. But he had no problem at all, he's much faster than a snake. We even had once a Boa in the garden.

Frank - GREAT SHOT BTW.....

^OO^ You NOTICED it too definitely, you've got eye on it ;D

Frank, I used to pet snakes when I was single, not cobra's species but quite poisonous species.

Btw, I'm still at my workplace and will follow your links at home, see you later Frank.

Thanks for the comment! GLAD YOU LIKE IT

Weet dan wel wat dit betekent Nico? Het staat namelijk op verkeersborden in Indo en houdt in dat het daar een afdeling van veilig verkeer is. Wat dacht jij dan weer jongetje...

Ooohh die arme hond..

Nico Huising on March 4, 2009

Hmmmm ik moet mijn Javaans weer eens wat gaan bijschaven geloof ik. Maar ik dacht dat het jou puur om het plaatje ging Bert.

Groetjes Nico
