hi
just thought in the back of my mind that ive got some pics of when i stayed in a villa right up in the mountains of corfu.
i looked through it at found a variety of animal species(i spent all my time taking pics of the wildlife).
one night a came upon a HUGE toad, and so i got some pics of it, and i was wondering if anyone know what species it was.
anyway, here are some pics....

There are only three species of toads where you live and it looks like you have Bufo bufo.

Common Toads do get huge in Southern Europe.

Sounds reasonable. They get a lot larger than in northern europe
