Ice toads are frogs that, through a strange magical phenomenon, have gained immunity to cold and generate an intense cold. They sometimes work as pets for frost giants or other beings of the snowy lands.

Ice toads are 8-foot-long toads with sharp teeth and a warty skin, ranging in color from icy blue to grayish black. They always appear to be shaking, as if cold.

Ice toads usually attack caribou or elk, but opt for smaller game, such as snowshoe hares. These creatures are generally timid and usually run if outnumbered. In groups, ice toads are more vicious, attacking anything that moves.

Ice toads are quite adaptable and can survive in any cold enviroment, but are pechant to being close to cold water

Ice toads prefer to hang back and let their cold auras do the work, only closing to bite when their prey is weak. If cornered, they will bite.

Magical beasts have darkvision with a range of 60 feet and low-light vision.

Cold Aura (Su): This aura is constantly in effect and extends in a 15-ft. radius. All within this aura take 3d6 points of cold damage each round. A Fortitude save (DC 20) halves this damage.
