TOADZILLA DISCOVERED IN AUSTRALIAN RAINFOREST
Written by Lola Narawa on January 24, 2023
A potentially world record-breaking monster toad has been found that’s six times the average size – and dubbed ‘Toadzilla’.
The cane toad is so big wildlife rangers suspected it was fake after coming across it in a north Australian rainforest.
The 2.7kg amphibian was removed from the wild.
The current Guinness World Record for the largest toad is 2.65kg, set by a pet toad in Sweden in 1991.
It is believed ‘Toadzilla’ bulked up by binging on insects, reptiles and small mammals.
Toads first came to Australia in 1935 and have become one of the country’s most damaging pests.
