I found cane toads much harder to tame down than rococco toads, and for one cane I simply stopped trying because the stress levels were obviously high (non-stop whimpering chirps). But in general I found that if I were able to ignore the oceans of urine they then learned that was not an effective technique. Maybe "tame down" is not quite accurate--I encouraged the puffed up threat display and respected it, and it seemed like they learned that puffing up worked better than peeing of they wanted to avoid handling. Hand feeding also helped, and when I opened the cage I would either get an eager feeding response or a puffed up threat display, and when it was the latter I just left them alone a while longer.
