People warned of the dangers of licking Psychedelic park toads in Colorado

The National Parks Services in the United States are warning guests to stay clear of the Sonoran desert toad, also known as the Colorado river toad or bufo alvarius.

The toad in question is the largest in the U.S. at 7 inches, they are also recognized by their short, “weak, low-pitched toot.”

 “As we say with most things you come across in a national park, whether it be a banana slug, an unfamiliar mushroom, or a large toad with glowing eyes in the dead of night, please refrain from licking,” the post read.

This particular toad specieswas described as secreting toxins that could harmhumans if consumed or touched.
Recently, guests of National Parks have been running the risk of poisoning while seeking out the 5-MeO-DMT and bufotenine found in the frog’s venom, which produces psychedelic effects.
