Save the Toads!

From the meat ants. That like cat food. And eat cane toads. Or something.

We went out and put out a little bit of cat food right beside the area where the baby toads were coming out of the ponds. The ants rapidly discovered the cat food and thought it tasted great."

But the cat food was just the appetiser. "When the young toads left the water, they were a perfectly-sized snack for the hungry ants," writes BigPond News.

"Meat ants are already killing millions of cane toads," Shine told Queensland's Cairns Post. "We're just looking to make it a bit easier for them."

Planned Parenthood for toads.

What are they going to do when they run out of cane toads? And cat food? I wouldn't want to live there then.
