Hello, I’m Pablo. Live in the North of Spain. Yesterday I went to the woods in my bike, and found this fela in the grass and stoped by. When I looked closely noticed that the poor toad had something wrong: some kind of illness in the skin, maybe a virus, some larvae, fungus or other. I know those things are killing a lot of anfibians so I took it to be sure it’s not contagious.
The animal is a Bufo bufo juvenile of 4 cm from Cantabria, Spain. It has superficial adhesion of some little tubular white particles on its skin,at the back and side of it’s head and some on the lower back. The tiny white things can be taken out with a forceps but the animal seem to suffer so I’ll wait until I know more.
Please help me identify and treat this thing on the animal skin.
