Movie Info

This film is a study of the cane toad, introduced into Australia in 1935 to control a beetle infestation that was destroying the country's sugar cane fields. The cane toad ate the beetles -- and everything else. With no natural predator to withstand its poison, the 100 original cane toad settlers soon took over the entire northern half of the vast continent of Australia. The film observes the toad's odd and often hilarious behavior and habits. Scientific commentary is balanced with fervently held opinions by local farmers on what to do about the cute but destructive cane toad.

    Fascinating documentary dealing with the man-made plague of pesky cane toads that were artificially introduced into eastern Australia.

    Really funny, entertaining and informative doc about Australia's problems with the wacky Cane Toad. Everything from the toads history to it's use as a drug to the folks who love it and swerve to hit them is here and very well done. Also watch the director's fantastic doc Rat.
