Weekly photo: “Feeling grumpy in the morning? Cane Toad (Rhinella marina). A South American species, great at controlling beetles that threatened sugar and fruit plantations. Introduced to Australia in 1935 and now hopping across the continent eating anything that they can fit in their mouths. To many Aussie animals a plump toad is a tempting meal, but toxins exuded from special glands on the toad’s head often leads to a quick death.” Photo by Paul Williams via Flickr.

This is so depressing. Come on, people!
