The Rococo Toad (Chaunus schneideri), sometimes referred to as Schneider's Toad, is a large toad native to the South America countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. It is frequently mistaken for the Cane Toad, and gets nearly as large. The easiest way to distinguish the two species, is that B. schneideri has poison glands on its back legs, as well as on either side of its head, as other toads.
It is kept as a pet.
