Not very familar with this website but thought this story to be a little to obscure not to share. Residents of Rodeo, New Mexico started noticing their pets missing they went on the hunt for the culprit expecting to find a mountain cat and what they found instead was a very large over sized toad






Usually this type of toad gets as big as 1.5 pounds, while being recognized as the largest native toad in North America. So how did this kind of toad gobble up all the neighborhood pets? Well, this guy was bigger than average. A whopping 57 pounds bigger!
It has become a huge mystery for scientists who are now scrambling to figure out how in the world this toad became so big, well over 50 pounds his average size.

Cant really verify this story but if its true is very strange indeed...What would make the toad grow to such an adnormal size.

Fake.
Snopes.com

On 24 July 2012, the Chiricahua Desert Museum in Rodeo, New Mexico, posted the above-displayed photograph to their Facebook page, along with the explanation that it pictured a 57-pound Sonoran Desert Toad which for two months had been preying on cats and dogs in the Rodeo area. The imprimatur conveyed by the image's appearance on a museum-related site led many viewers to accept the photograph as genuine, until the museum took to Facebook a week later to admit that the picture was a Photoshopped hoax intended as a spoof of the many giant rattlesnake photos that circulated online:

If only it were true, I would be first in line to get one of those. However, searching Google reviled it is a hoax.

Photoshop makes it more difficult to believe what you see nowadays, even when what you are seeing is real, and that is a shame.
That would be a pretty cool pet if there was a toad that size!

That would be one large set of frog legs, if you are into that sort of thing.

That's a frog.
Not a toad.
Smooth skin, long rear legs.
Fake as half the titties in Hollywood.
