Canetoads we love and cherish
Cane toads were brought into Australia early in the 1900's for the purpose of eradicating a particular species of beetle which was eating sugar cane crops in Queensland.
Unfortunately the toads weren't the least bit interested in the beetles but bred profusely.
Cane toads are a very great threat to the native environment because they compete for food in the bush, and because most animals that attempt to eat them die, due to their poisonous glands.
They can spit toxic venom blinding their enemies, are extremely hardy, and are almost impossible to kill.
Despite past myths cane toads do not drive vintage cars and, in fact, do not even understand roads.
