Scientists from the University of Sydney and the Department of Primary Industries have offered Aussies some slim hope that they will not ultimately be driven from the Lucky Country by rampaging hordes of cane toads who continue their inexorable march across Oz. Cane toads were introduced into Australia from Hawaii in the 1930s …
Can't be true

Seperated at birth
Is this the soon-to-be-ex-PM "little" Johnnie Howard?
They're extremely poisonous, IIRC. I remember seeing a documentary about them a while back, where the Oz gov't was apparently offering a bounty on them. Led to all kinds of rustic guys in flannel shirts stalking the undergrowth with spears.
Who's up for a round of Golf?
eating - bad idea
They're poisonous. Some animals have adapted to be able to eat them though by either tolerating the toxins or just eating the organs that don't have them.

toad licking gOoD
Cane Toad Bashing
I thought it was a national sport, playing cricket with Cane Toads.
Disclaimer to tree huggers: Im not supporting this act, merely pointing out it's an Aussie national sport!
shame on you! Can't you all just get along, and celebrate diversity? :)
they're not pests, they're undocumented immigrants! Do what we do in California, hand em welfare, cash and food benefits, immunity from most laws and regulations, and set them up in the most powerful special interest groups American politics has ever seen!
no lick the big ones
Other kinds of toads perhaps (if there is nothing else) but licking this particular guy could kill you outright some freaks used to make toad skin stew but it was never a popular drug it made you more sick than high and cooking destroys some of the toxins ,so don't lick the giant toad.
They're poisonous? Eat the bastards, punishment for unleashing Fosters on the unsuspecting world. Bah, can't anyone besides Jamaica make a decent beer anymore?
They may be arthritic
But they can still beat the Wallabies at Rugby.
ok as long as you don't swash them, oh and the fact you get a 'buzz' if you lick their backs.....
that 90's call comes to mind ...Assscidddd
are the new rabbit
A plague of Arthritic Australian Toads.
They've cloned Rupert Murdoch?
The Driza and the hat with the corks on it, thanks.
