Yep, talk of the town.

Kakadu is seriously threatened - as the article mentioned they are poisonous as all get out. I'm vastly relieved to see they can be converted to fertiliser (as we do to European Carp yanked from inland rivers) but we need something benign that eats them by the ton.

The list of unwanted exotics is immense due to the work of colonists, visiting ships, the Acclimatisation Society of Victoria,  fish, reptile (wanna Burmese Python?) and flower fanciers not to mention Monsanto.

wSV may confirm that the protected Aussie possum (that lays our garden waste) is a pest species in New Zealand. There you can buy socks made from harvested possum fur/wool. Here you can't touch the little buggers.

Only 2 pounds?  That's the size of a really, really, REALLY small dog, then.

As I understand it "Something benign that eats them in tons" was how we got the toad.

Personally, I don't think there's anything more benign than a pitch-fork.  And they don't breed, which is a very nice attribute of being benign.

Unfortunately, I think that toad is poisonous. So if I ate it, I might *croak*. muahahaha
