The Cane Toads – Bufo Marinus, natives of
central America – were imported by the sack-
load to Australia in 1935 in an attempt to rid
the country of the Greyback beetle, which was
rapidly destroying the sugarcane crop. The
Cane Toads adapted beautifully to their new
surroundings. Problem was, the beetle could
fly and the Cane Toad couldn’t. What the cane
toad is unusually proficient at, however, is
making more cane toads – thousands upon thousands more. 'Cane Toads, an unnatural history' tells the story of this amphibious
assault – warts and all.
