October 8, 2020

I am known as an American Toad
Snakes will try to eat me if they get the chance.
But my warty skin secretes poison, 
And if that fails, I pee my pants!*

To quote the article referenced below: "When these toads are faced with a predator that is immune to their poison they will sometimes urinate on themselves to become a less attractive meal."
