I think it's definitely unnecessary BUT the range of C.cornuta overlaps with Bufo marinus, known to be incredibly toxic.
We know that marinus is immune to it's own toxins so that allows for cannibalism.
Since Ceratophrys is an anuran eating genus, it could be that they have developed a resistance to bufotoxins.
that being said, feeding them toads is unscientific, perhaps comparing the growth rate/behaviour of Ceratophrys eating mice with and without bufotoxins on them would be a better study.

Old thread, but do you know if they did study immunity to bufotoxins? If they made a paper on it, please post a link!

Not to mention there are a lot of frog to frog transferable diseases like chytrid for example... feeding your frog toads is a good way to spread illness, plus don't you at least find it a little creepy? they're so closely related if you cared for one you would think you would care for the other species.

I have seen a crow eating some Kentucky Fried Chicken in a parking lot once, so :p

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
