Imagine walking through Yellowstone looking up from your phone and seeing someone lick a toad. Recently Yellowstone Park had to put up signs in their park telling people not to lick or make tongue contact with any animals. Yes, they caught so many people licking toads they had to make it a new rule that you can't lick them. The toad that made this a thing is called the Colorado River toad. It releases a certain chemical that makes you have wild hallucinations. The first hallucinogenic toad was discovered in 1893. The chemical that causes the hallucinations is called 5-MEO-DMT. It only takes about five minutes for the chemical to start working. The high caused by the toad usually lasts about an hour compared to marijuana which usually lasts anywhere from two to ten hours. 66 percent of the people that ingest 5-MeO-DMT report that they could feel their heartbeat and you felt like they were dead or dying.
I don't think that they should have to put up signs to stop people from licking frogs or other animals. If they die or get hurt in any way it's their fault. Adults shouldn't have to babysit and protect other adults from licking animals.
Do you think that they should have to put signs like that up?
What would you do if you watched someone lick a toad?
