What you need to know about pestorking a toad:
- Male cane toads often wrestle with each other in an effort to grasp a mate.
- Male toads will grasp any female that comes within reach and retain their hold unless displaced by a rival male.
- Females can actually manipulate the outcome of male-male competition by inflating at the right moment.
- A female toad inflates its body to prevent an amorous male from mating with it.
Like we need an excuse to post gratuitous photos of toad sex.
