Description
This plump toad is the Bufo Marineas, native to southern Mexico and Guatemala, and reverred for his hallucinogenic qualities. He opens his wide mouth as if to sing joyously about his wondrous, magical dreams. The sphere on which he sits is perhaps a jungle fungus, or maybe, to the toad's expanded vision, it is the entire world. - (PF.0407)
