    In 1935 the Cane toad (Bufo marinus) was brought to Australia in hopes that it would eat Beatles that were destroying sugar cane fields, but that never happened. Now the Cane toad is really messing up Australia's wild life system. Just over 100 Cane toads were brought in and now their numbers are over 200 Million.Why not have some serious toad hunting party's and get rid of'em:supergrin:

    I don't think the cane toad is halucinogenic. It's inedible and largemouth bass hate it as bait. Kill it with fire. HH

  8. The Aussie snakes are having a rough time, the toxins in the cane toads kills some of them.
