    Look at it from the toad's point of view.

    There you are, sitting in some nice wet mulch, minding your own business and suddenly you are uncovered and chased by a creature 70 times your height and 300-400 times your weight.

    For a human that would be like you were surprised by a monster that would be 350-400 feet tall and weighing about 55,000 pounds chasing you.

    Would YOU stay around?:scaredeyes::scaredeyes::scaredeyes::scaredeyes:

    Interesting, I wonder if the height does have an influence on the reaction of toads?

    Does being lifted about 10 times it's height really scare the....uh... trigger a defensive reaction?
