3: Classification of a cane toad: Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Amphibia Family: Anura Genus: Bufo Species: marinus Cane toads (Bufo marinus) are large, short amphibians with dry warty skin. They are grey/olive to brown above with a pale belly and have dark irregular spots. Cane toads possess venomous glands for defence. Adults are usually 10-15 cm in length but can reach up to 23 cm. The species is feral in Australia, and is causing considerable habitat destruction and the loss of Australian native fauna species through poisoning and competition.
