Rhinella schneideri, sometimes referred to as Schneider's toad, cururu toad, or rococo toad, is a large toad found in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Amazonian and eastern Bolivia, and Brazil.[1][2][3]

Rhinella schneideri is a widespread and very common species that occurs in a variety of habitats but most commonly in open and urban ones. It breeds in permanent and temporary ponds, preferring ones without much vegetation.[1] It is kept as a pet,[4] but pet trade is not occurring at levels that would constitute a threat.[1]
