Are cane toads poisonous?

    Yes. When cane toads feel threatened, glands behind their eyes gooze out a milky-white fluid known as bufotoxin. Bufotoxin is toxic to many animals and human deaths have even been reported due to the consumption of cane toads.

    Bufotenin, one of the chemicals excreted by the cane toad, is classified as a Class 1 drug under Australian law alongside heroin and cannabis. It is thought that the effects of bufotenin are similar to that of mild poisoning. The mild hallucinations that this chemical causes lasts less than an hour.
