    Except certain salamandrid salamanders that can extrude sharp venom-tipped ribs, amphibians are not known to actively inject venom, most toxic amphibiansare instead known to be poisonous to touch or eat. Amphibians usually sequester toxins from animals and plants on which they feed, commonly from poisonous insects or poisonous plants. One example of this is the well-known poison dart frog. They get a deadly chemical called lipophilic alkaloid from consuming a poisonous food in the rainforest. And they are immune to the poison, so they secrete it through their skinas a defense mechanism against predators, just as other amphibians do. This poison is so efficient, the native people of the South American Amazon rainforest use the frogs' toxins on their weapons to kill their prey, giving the frogs their nickname the "poison dart frog".

    However,other people use the bufotoxins of some species of toxic toads as a drug to get high, but this can become very dangerous. Usually due to thetoads' size and toxicity, the poisons would not be deadly to a fully grown, healthy adult. But if too much of the toxins is absorbed, or if the person is young or ill, then the poisons can become a serious threat. It also depends on the species, because some types of amphibiansdo have toxins strong enough to kill even a healthy and mature person within just a few minutes, while other species may not have toxins potent enough to have any effect on the person at all. In addition, licking toads is not biologically practical. For these tryptamines to beorally activated, the human monoamine oxidase system needs to be inhibited. Therefore, licking a poisonous amphibian will not guarantee receiving a high sensation.
