Monster Toad Captured!


This bounty hunter is my kind of scum: fearless and inventive.” Cane toad, Bufo marinus

The environmental group, Frogwatch, caught one of the largest specimens of toad ever discovered in Darwin, Australia on Tuesday. The apprehended toad is the size of a football and as heavy as a small sack of potatoes.

Cane toads are a highly poisonous, non-native species in Australia and have been wreaking havoc on the local ecosystem for decades. Frogwatch’s “Toad Buster” project launches “raids” on small ponds, blinds the toads with bright lights and nets them by the dozens. From there they are killed with carbon dioxide and used as fertilizer. Usually the biggest cane toads are females. “I would hate to meet his big sister,” said Graeme Sawyer, Frogwatch coordinator.

    We have to confess I was guilty of the same dilemma once but identified out that checking my stats was a distraction from doing actual function progressing my blog so I cut back. I just use google analytics now. It’s the very best just one in my feeling.
