The pic that Lilith posted wasn't of frogs - They're Cane Toads. They were an introduced species to Australia in the 1930s to control the cane beetles on sugar cane farms, but they spread immensely quickly, and are considered a noxious pest now. They have no natural predators here, and since they're highly poisonous, they destroy tons of the native wildlife here, most notably, the populations of native frogs Not to mention cats and dogs, and just about anything else.
Fun fact: The native crows here are about the only thing that can eat them. They flip them onto their backs and eat them from the stomach, thereby avoiding the poison glands
Just too many toads now though, for the crows to make any kind of difference
