> Native to South and mainland Middle America, cane toads were introduced to Australia from Hawaii in June 1935 by the Bureau of Sugar Experiment Stations, now the Sugar Research Australia in an attempt to control the native grey-backed cane beetle (Dermolepida albohirtum) and Frenchi beetle (Lepidiota frenchi). These beetles are native to Australia and they are detrimental to sugar cane crops, which are a major source of income for Australia.
>>2037760 Because all the cane toad's native predators would fuck things up even worse than the actual toads. I'm sure you can see why releasing cat eyed snakes or bullet ants into australia wouldn't be a good plan.
Honestly, they should just evacuate the continent and turn it into an experimental battleground. Every time an introduced species become a problem, introduce something even more cancerous that can kill it. See how it all turns out in the end, for science.
>>2038341 This. Not to Australia but I would love to see this done to a sizeable island just to see how fuct everything would be. I'm talking b class sci-fi movie with a scientist polluting a lake to create mutations type shit. The more retarded the better.
