According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the toad is real.

However, a specialist from the department noted that this animal, though large, was not as big as it looks in the photo. The fact is that in the photo a person brought the toad closer to the camera lens so that it seemed even bigger.

It is worth noting that the largest frog in the world is a goliath frog that lives in Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea. She eats snakes.

Large frogs are on the verge of extinction,as many people buy them as pets, as well as giant frogs acquire zoos. However, they do not breed in captivity.

It turned out that this boar is, in fact, a domestic pig named Fred, who loved to play with children and eat sweet potatoes.

In the photo, which has recently been incredibly popular on the Internet, you can see a giant squid 49 meters long. According to the author of the photo, the squid was thrown on the shore of Santa Monica, California.
