    Default Ray of hope against Cane Toads

    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!
