I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Josh, please? Toad (Bufo species) toxicity is more likely to cause hyperthermia rather than hypothermia due to the catecholamines ("adrenalin") in the parotid secretions of those toads.
