Bufo toads, also known as cane toads, grow during rainy weather in Florida cities and can be poisonous to cats and dogs.

Palm Beach Gardens residents are concerned about poisonous cane toads lingering in their community, WPTV reported.

According to Mark Holladay of Toad Busters, a toad removal company, torrential rain and a warm winter caused them to go into a breeding cycle and there will be another “influx like this in 22 days when the next batch hatches out,” he told WPTV.

The cane toad, also known as a bufo toad, has a white toxin on their skin that can make cats and dogs ill if bitten or digested.

"I just see a massive amount of toads or frogs everywhere, covering every square inch," said Jennie Quasha, a Gardens resident interviewed by WPTV. "You can't even walk through the grass without stepping on one."
