First or Second Century B.C. Colima Toad, or Ankylosaur?

Here at, we know that there’s probably no less exciting “dinosaur” than the ankylosaur —but here again we use this particular distinctive animal to prove that man and “dinosaur” co-existed, just as the Bible tells us.

Sure, we wish we had a first century example of a t-rex, but today we have to deal with what we have. (we do have more interesting examples on prior pages of this section)

The item shown above was for sale. The company selling it “knows” that ankylosaurs died out 65 million years ago, according to scientists who study such things. Therefore, this has to be a toad, (for which there is some resemblance, we suppose) which did still exist more than 2,500 years ago.

They describe it first as a toad and then later in the text as a “reptile”. Of course, toads are not reptiles, they are amphibians. Anklyosaurs were reptiles, however, but we’re probably just being picky.

Below we provide; the auctioneer’s full description, photos of the object in question, a picture of some actual toads, as well as a synopsis of what science says about the anklyosaur. You’ll have to decide for yourself if this is a Colima culture toad, –or a dinosaur.

Frankly, we think toads will be insulted by the comparison.
