Well, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view, as the wise Obi-Wan Kenobi put it. Far be it from me to engage in toad-shaming.
The entomologist and nature photographer Piotr Naskrecki found this Mexican burrowing toad (Rhinophrynus dorsalis) in Belize. He says that in the traditional Mayan religion, it was called Uo and was associated with the god of rain. It's about the size of a human fist and is a surprisingly quick mover.
The toad is known for burrowing with its hind legs. As it digs, it inflates its body to expand and stabilize the burrow. It feeds underground, where it hunts insects, such as ants and termites.
