Its also has numerous tiny bumps or spikes on it head, small sharp teeth and a long slobbery red tongue.

The Snake Toad itself can be roasted over an open fire if out in the wilderness. When pickled in liquor, it makes a popular alcoholic drink.

Galala Gator Arc
After Toriko and Komatsu arrived at the Baron Archipelago, they immediately began trekking through the forests of the Baron Bog, however a Snake Toad soon appeared behind Komatsu and moved towards him which greatly spooked him, luckily Toriko easily took it out with a single punch. Toriko then commented that it was just a Snake Toad and nothing to get worked up over, but Komatsu then comments that he's cooked many in his kitchen but it is the first one he's ever seen alive.
Later that night, they cooked the Snake Toad over an open fire which attracted several hungry wild beasts. Toriko then threw some of the Snake Toad's meat at them so they could survive.
Puffer Whale Arc
The Snake Toad is briefly mentioned by Zonge's followers while they were showing off Zonge's Full Course Menu where they revealed it was his soup dish. However, Komatsu was unimpressed as many of the ingredients on the menu, including the Snake Toad are quite common dishes.
Anime and Manga Differences
- In the Toriko Jump Special, the Snake Toad's color scheme is green skin with blue eyes rather than blue skin with yellow eyes.
- In Toei's anime, the Snake Toad's scene is completely removed, and only the brief scene of it being cooked is adapted from the manga.
