AbstractRhinella marina is a common and resilient species. Occasionally, it can be vector of different diseases due to its dispersion ability. Ocular alteration can be produced by abiotic and biotic factors. One of these factors, are the diseases, such as chytridiomycosis (produced by Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis), which in some cases produces stratum corneum hyperkeratinisation. In field-work carried out in August 2011, we found an individual of R. marina with a whitish epidermal ocular anomaly. We swab the toad, which tested negative to Bd. We consider relevant to highlight these anomalies, which on occasions could reflect some diseases. This is especially important in Cerro Jesús, where we confirmed the presence of some endangered amphibians species.
