Think their eating the native frogs. Are they everywhere over there, in the city yet?

I don't think so. I've never heard them being down near Perth, I just remember hearing some had been found beyond the border. I think only a few have been found, no major breeding population yet.

How much of a problem are they over there now? Are you in Queensland?

We've got a ton of them in upstate NY. I find at least 2 or 3 in my pool skimmer per day in the summertime.
Here's one I pulled out of my pool a few years back.

They are the canary in the coal mine. I have a cockatiel. Burning teflon kills cockatiels. I have NO teflon cookware in my home. If it kills birds it cannot be good for humans.

1.5 hours from Cairns in the mountains , Ravenshoe. At night , they come from everywhere,  people collect them in plastic bags and freeze them and a fertilizer "plant" takes them. They also skin them for key rings and stuff.
I'm surprised there not everywhere there  too., lived in Mt Isa 3 yrs ago , and they've been there for the whole 10 yrs I lived there, didn't seem that they had far to go W.A.

You can do some very strange things with cane toad I'm told. Scarring the **** out of them is always the first step in any "recipe" . If you saw one , the last thing you'd do is lick it.

Aren't they suppose to faze out that Teflon cook ware because it causes cancer.  I stopped using it a long time ago.
