If you like chocolate you need to be grateful to the Sulawesi Toad (Ingerophrynus celebensis).
According to a group of German and Australian agricultural scientists:
The world’s supply of chocolate depends partly on hard work by ugly toads in Indonesia . . . The toads like to dine on an invasive pest, the yellow crazy ant (Anoplolepis gracilipes). The non-native ants, each about 4 millimetres long, have overrun Indonesian cocoa plantations, driving out good ants which help protect the cocoa plants from disease.
Not only is this toad essential to the cocoa supply (Indonesia is the world’s third-largest exporter of cocoa), but its ecological (and economic!) value will add weight to the efforts to save the rain forests. Amphibian populations in general have declined with the disappearance of rain forests.
One of my phobias is frogs/toads. However, if they’re going to do such good work I support their conservation – as long as they do what they do far away from me!
