Artist's Description

Cane Toad, (Bufo Marinus)
The cane toad was introduced into Gordonvale Queensland 22kms south of Cairns in 1935 from Hawaii to combat the sugar cane beetle which was destroying the crops of the sugarcane industry.
It has since hopped all over Queensland and is now entering neighboring states.
This toad is currently considered a major threat to native wildlife.
All efforts are now being made for its eradication. The skin of the cane toad is strong. tough and durable and makes up into excellent leather goods.
Chinese medicine manufacturers have been using cane toads for centuries in treatment of Cardio Vascular Diseases and Cancer treatment. It is highly likely that the cane toad will one day be farmed in Queensland in high volume for production of therapeutic medicines for mankind. A reversal- from pest to saver.
