Hey Daz, we found Baz!

Baz, the cane toad has been sighted in and around our camp multiple times. For those who have never heard of cane toads, they are an introduced species to Australia. They are poisonous and are killing off many native animals, making them an unwanted pest. It is a shock having them on the island…they seem to be invading everywhere here in the north. We aren’t sure how they got to the island but maybe they drifted on a log or a bird carried their eggs from the mainland. Here on the island they are a threat to the snakes and birds which eat them.
