So it is pretty normal to see the foaming at the mouth after tasting a toad. Part of the toads defense is to give off a terrible taste. The bad taste causes some foaming at the mouth and agitation.

Could you give her a treat and a few sips of milk?

The foaming and agitation should stop within an hour.
