Yep. My brother made one do it when we were younger.

Poor toad.

Here's a neat video I found explaining such.

Wow. Is this our cue to pick on Les?!

Perhaps you actually meant his talents NEVER cease to amaze you. Actually, his talents cease to do anything for me as well!!

Great shots Les. Probably easier for you to find them, being so close to them and all!

I've caught many-o-toads in my live, but have never seen the blood from the eyes. I've always took care of them, handling with care. Still do. Photos and send them on they way OFF OF THE ROADS!
