This is very bad news - they have the potential to decimate eastern water skinks and eastern water dragons (who will eat the tadpoles) , skinks like bluetongues who will eat smaller toads , and lace monitors who will eat the adult toads , as well as predatory birds (kookaburras) , pythons and snakes who will eat the toads.

Also bad news for people allow their cats to roam, and for dogs who might encounter toads who enter their yard.

Hopefully the locals will evolve to stand up to their poison in time.
