It has been suggested that content from this article (or section) be split into Swamp toad (bait).
The Swamp toad is a small creature with removable legs. If you choose to remove them, toad's legs appear in your inventory in place of the swamp toad. The text "You pull the legs off the toad. Poor toad. At least they'll grow back." appears in the chat box. The Toad's legs can be used to make gnome cuisine. They are also used in agility potions (when mixed with toadflax) as a secondary ingredient.

The swamp toad itself (with legs) is the tertiary ingredient for making Barker toad pouches.

There is also a creature of the same name around the swamps in Feldip Hills. These are distinct from the swamp toad item. They cannot be picked up to obtain toad legs; instead they are filled with swamp gas using a ogre bellows to create a bloated toad, which is used as bait when trying to kill a chompy bird, and are also used in the quest Mourning's Ends Part I where they are injected with dye.


Swamp toads spawn in the Tree Gnome Stronghold swamp

Swamp toads spawn in the following locations:

There are also dropped by Tortoises, and obtained from pickpocketing Gnomes.


Swamp toads fetch a fair price on the Grand exchange due to their use in summoning (the barker toad pouch is the second best pouch to make from gold charms in terms of Summoning experience). A full inventory of toads is currently worth 7280 coins, and they respawn quickly. For this reason, gathering them in the Tree Gnome Stronghold has become a common way to make quick money, with no skill requirements. Players are advised to collect them on a well-populated world to reduce the respawn time (see Server), while avoiding worlds where other players are collecting if possible; there will then be enough spawns for the player to collect constantly. A Beast of burden is also recommended. It takes roughly a minute to bank and return, using either bank in the stronghold. A slightly faster banking method is to teleport to Mobilising Armies using a ring of duelling, and use the spirit tree to return to the stronghold.
