Just read this new post about the possibility of Aussie Meat Ants combatting the dreaded cane toad.
Here's hoping for a good outcome.
By the way I saw in the recent cane toad grab that people were catching them with their bare hands but I thought they had a nasty poison.
Any comments on that appreciated.
Cheers: Ian Mc

Interesting link, Ian. The cane toads do have poison but I think you need to ingest it to cause trouble - so probably OK to catch them as long as you don't lick your fingers afterwards!
