Giant Toad Update

Thanks to Scott Cupp for the tip. There's a photo at the link (of the toad, not Scott).

Hunters trap giant cane toad | Herald Sun: "A CANE toad the size of a small dog has been nabbed in the middle of a 'breeding frenzy' in Darwin.
The 861-gram male is the biggest caught anywhere in the Northern Territory, according to environmental group Frogwatch.

Measuring 20.5cm in length, the colossal male was one of 39 toads caught in a breeding frenzy, said FrogWatch co-ordinator Graeme Sawyer.

'The biggest toads are usually females but this one was a rampant male,' he said.

'He is huge. I would hate to meet his big sister.'"
