If you don’t have a large enough menagerie of cute animals to follow on Instagram, may we recommend a toad? Wait, hear us out. He’s very talented and he helps control the bug population.

Toby got his big break in the Facebook group Frogspotting (some might quibble about the name, but Southern Toads like Toby are very welcome there) when Florida resident Savannah Mikell noticed she had a visitor camping out on her front porch every night. She was so charmed by him that she brought out an old dollhouse and let him explore, taking pictures to share with the group. Since our last check-in with Savannah and Toby, the toad has upgraded to his own Instagram page with over 80,000 followers who are just as tickled by his miniature adventures and silly captions.

Scroll down to see ya boi Toby the toad’s antics.

When we first contacted Savannah about Toby, she explained that he's only a pet in the loosest sense, as he comes and goes as he pleases. It sounds like the relationship is mutually beneficial⁠—he gets to use her porch as a safe home base, and she gets to take cute pictures of him.

Gardening experts recommend making your yard frog and toad friendly because they vacuum up so many bugs. If you want these cute and useful visitors, you can try leaving out a dish of water and a shelter, like an overturned flower pot, where they can rest and be protected from predators.

Encouraging frogs and toads to hang around your house isn't recommended if you have dogs, though, because the amphibians can release poison if bitten or picked up. Some toads only cause unpleasant effects to dogs, like a nasty taste and excessive drooling, while others are life-threatening, so it's important to look up which toads live in your area and what the risks are.

Firstly, Go Gators!! Secondly, definitely creative set ups for your toad. Unfortunately, this is the poisonous cane toad that I have to throw over my backyard wall to prevent my dog from going after it.
