No stranger to most Queenslanders, the Cane Toad is well
known for its ability to poison pets and most wildlife that unwittingly ingest
its toxin. Since its release in 1935, near Sarina, in an unsuccessful attempt
to control the cane beetle, the toad has spread far and wide across northern
Australia and its range is continuing to expand.
Habitat : prefers open grassland and disturbed bushland,
roads & tracks and near habitations but can exist in most seasonally moist habitat
types, often in very large numbers. Absent from very dry and seasonally cold areas.
