TRUTH !!
One hundred Hawaiian Cane Toads were introduced to Brisbane in 1935. With each female laying strings of 35,000 eggs twice a year, with no known predators, they grew to more than 60,000 within 6 months. Growing as large as 10 inches and 6 pounds, cane toads are able to shoot a toxic liquid up to 3 feet. With a taste for snakes and mice, they have decimated Australian wildlife, but ironically, these picky eaters never took a liking
to the beetles they were brought in to control.

I did very poorly on the questions, but always enjoy reading them and learning a little something along the way.

Do you care to say who the PhD pres was?
