This video shows a rather disturbing image of a large toad with an eye infested by a wriggling worm. The toad seems calm enough but it’s hard to believe it still has sight in that eye.
This blogger isn’t a vet but wonders whether or not the parasite caught on camera here is the roundworm known as toxocara. It’s commonly associated with dogs but can pass to human.
This video from Animal Planet’s Monsters Inside Me documents the case of a toddler that lost vision in one eye due to an infection.

Have you ever seen anything quite like that? Do you think this could be toxocara or do you think it may be something else?
All hail the hypnotoad!
Here’s that image. Just one more time!
