The cane toad. The moist tropical forests of Central America are particularly rich in species and populations of amphibians. Globally, the amphibians are one of the most endangered groups of animals, due to environmental pollution and the spread of fungi that are harmful for them. Therefore, the presence of amphibians in ecosystems are a good indication of their state of "health". In the photo, a specimen of cane toad (Rhinella marina), in Costa Rica.
