The South American cane toad (Bufo Marinus) was introduced into Australia in about the '30s in an ill-conceived exercise to eradicate the dreaded cane beetle. The perpetrators failed to realise that the beetle spent most of its time 2 metres off the ground in the top of the sugar cane stalks. They didn't go anywhere near the beetle, they were just interested in getting stuck into each other. Now there's millions of the bastards.

The cane toad is a prolific breeder; females lay single-clump spawns with thousands of eggs. Its reproductive success is partly because of opportunistic feeding: it has a diet, unusual among toads (Anurans, or true toads), of both dead and living matter. Adults average 10–15 cm (3.9–5.9 in) in length; the largest recorded specimen weighed 2.65 kilograms (5.8 lb) with a length of 38 cm (15 in) from snout to vent.

Now most of northern OZ has these soft, poisonous, mostly-nocturnal blobs in plague proportions, and they're rapidly spreading. Here's one way we deal with things like this....nothing scientific, listen closely, just some Aussie humour.

Have we accomplished half of what we dreamt we would? There may still be time.

Was attempting to 'splain a few things 'bout OZ to some mates at work as I'm returning home soon and they were querying me a bit 'bout the beautiful flora but mostly about the, to foreigners and those not in the know, often ghastly fauna. So I had to dig this one out and re-visit it. Nearly p*ssed meself with laughter watching it again. Note the clever subtle and not-so-subtle OZ references. Enjoy.
