Australia's native frogs beat invasive toads

3 posts in this topic

The tadpoles of Australia's native frogs can outcompete invasive toads, scientists say.

The toads are considered a threat to Australian wildlife, leading researchers to investigate methods to control their population.

A study into competition between wild amphibian young revealed that the presence of green tree frogs reduced cane toad survival.

Experts now suggest reintroducing the familiar frogs to suburban areas.

That's rule one of Australian Wildlife. "Don't **** with us". We've got crows here TEACHING each other how to eat cane toads safely.

EEEPPPp tree frogs are so cute. Like really frigging cute. :sk

Ok, that said. Very cool that an indigenous species or few might be able to kick out the invasive species. I hope it works :)
