The Portuguese word for toad is "sapo" whose origin is unknown, usually seen as Pre-Roman. There was attempts to relate it to Greek se:ps, to Basque and another possibilities.
I think sapo is very similar to Slavic z^aba. The word could be IE, but from where? Ligurian? Lusitanian?
PIE *gWe:bH- - Germanic quabbe Dutch kwabbe Latin bu:fo:n- (<*gWo:bH?) Salvic z^aba Albanian
zhabë (< *Slavic?)
