Bufonidae is the true toad family. Their most noticeable and recognizable feature is the pair of parotoid glands on their back of their heads. This gland can produce a toxin when the toads are stressed. The males also have Bidder’s Organ, which allows them to turn into females. The family Bufonidae is found on on every continent besides Australia and Antarctica.
