    Good suggestion. I'll report back.

    BTW, I think your toads are Black-spined toad คางคกบ้าน

    Duttaphrynus melanostictus, commonly called the Asian Common Toad

    Only because I was looking into more information about the Rice-field Crab and found remarkably little, then I strayed into amphibians. (It's an exciting life here.)

    No it wasn't Thailand. But I've seen them there on many occasion. In fact I have crushed a few.

    Another one has just shown up and started eating its way into the bamboo pole. Big thing, a good 2 inches I guess. I was recently admiring a neighbour's new bamboo fence, right now I am pleased to have used concrete.
    The phone's camera struggles with different shades of black and it is high up so difficult to get close up.

    My dog was making some noise at 6am so I went out to investigate and he had a snake there. He was keeping his distance but I backed him off a bit more. The snake was unhurt so I got the garden hose and and tried so squirt it out of the garden. This is my preferred approach but he got himself round the other way and took cover under my work bench. I don't like to kill them if necessary but 2 kids waking up soon and 2 dogs, I decided to get the air rifle out and shoot him while I still had eyes on him. He didn't move too fast, which I worried that maybe that's because he doesn't have to.

    I took some pics then checked up some internet pics. I can't be sure but I think it was maybe a Reticulated Python, which is a shame because not poisonous.

    The reticulated python (Malayopython reticulatus) is a python species native to South and Southeast Asia. It is the world's longest snake, and listed as least concern on the IUCN Red List because of its wide distribution.

    Just a nipper
