    Toads are used as ingredients in brews and as familiars. Toad skins are used for the poison which is secreted from their glands when injured or provoked. The poison is hallucinogenic by lore. Depending on what type of a toad it is, the poison may just taste bad or it may kill.

    Toads are used as charms, in brews, in magic remedies, in amulets, and also at the witches sabbats supposedly accoring to folklore.

    In modern witchcraft they are used as familiars as they are intelligent, easy to tame and easy to care for. They are also said to have psychic powers.
